Missing Pasco 60-year-old home after saying he crossed Central Florida on scooter

NEW PORT RICHEY — A 60-year-old New Port Richey man who was reported missing Sunday morning returned home Sunday evening, telling authorities he had gone to Ocala on his scooter for a "joy ride," according to Pasco deputies.

Henry Arnold Mays left his home in the 4000 block of Woodsville Drive about 7 p.m. Saturday on his yellow 2008 Bashan motor scooter.

He was reported missing around 11:30 a.m. Sunday.

Henry Arnold Mays had not been heard or seen from since leaving the house.

Mays, who left wearing a red shirt and blue jeans, needs medication and medical oxygen, according to the Sheriff's Office.

He reportedly frequents local bars and recently talked of driving home to Indiana.

Mays had never been reported missing before.

"He gets out and makes friends pretty easy," said Bob Hartman, Mays' brother-in-law.

"But he never spends the night away from home. He keeps his oxygen on at night. He's got emphysema real bad."

Staff writer Rita Farlow contributed to this story.
