Detectives ask public to help locate missing Oldsmar man

UPDATE 10:50 p.m.: Pinellas deputies say they have found a man who had been missing for nearly a month.

Clark B. Phillips, 66, of Oldsmar, was located Wednesday night at a rehab facility, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.

The rehab facility contacted authorities after seeing media reports about the missing man. Phillips, officials said, has been there since Oct. 15.

OLDSMAR — Officials have asked for the public's help to locate a 66-year-old man who has been missing for nearly a month.

Clark B. Phillips, 66, of Oldsmar has not been seen or heard from by his friends since October 10. He was officially reported missing five days later.

Phillips, who suffers from dementia among other medical conditions, would occasionally stay with his friends at an apartment at 3156 Huron Avenue, but was also transient and lived on the streets, deputies said.

But Phillips' friends said even when he lived on the streets, they would still hear from him. When they heard nothing for several days, deputies said, they became concerned that he may be ill and wandering Pinellas County.

Phillips does not own or drive a car, and would likely be traveling on foot, deputies said.

He is a Caucasian man with short hair and light eyes.

His friends told officials he does not have his medications with him.

Anyone with information has been asked to contact Detective James Beining with the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office at 727-582-6200.
