Missing man found, returned to his home

Hernando County deputies on Tuesday afternoon found a 28-year-old Spring Hill man who had not been seen since late Monday. Anthony Sureda was found by authorities sometime after noon Tuesday, according to the Hernando County Sheriff's Office. He was in good condition and was being returned home. Sureda was reported missing Monday after going to swim with friends in the Weeki Wachee River, just east of the Weeki Wachee Christian Camp. When several of his friends decided to leave, Sureda told them he was going to stay behind. A couple of hours later, a family member called authorities to report that he had not yet come home. A sheriff's spokeswoman said Sureda suffers from cerebral palsy in his hands and has speech difficulties.
