Hillsborough deputies find family of critically injured man

UPDATE: Deputies found a member of Roberts' family. His brother, Richard Butrick, is currently in the Falkenburg Road Jail, accused of violating his probation on a drug charge, deputies say.

RIVERVIEW — Sean Eric Roberts, 22, is in critical condition, unable to talk from his hospital bed.

In these critical hours, deputies have searched for his family, someone to be by his side.

But they have not found anyone.

Roberts was driving a stolen motorcycle in rural Riverview at about 2:30 a.m. Thursday when he careened off the road and hit a concrete mailbox, deputies say.

He had a driver's license, but the address was no longer correct.

He also had a criminal record, but that information did not lead to family.

So at about 2 p.m., deputies handed the information to reporters, along with a photo of Roberts.

Maybe the picture of the man with a tattoo of the state of Florida on his face will grab someone's eye.

Anyone with information can call deputies at (813) 247-8200.
