Pinellas deputies search for disabled man last seen leaving Congressman Bill Young's office

SEMINOLE — Deputies are asking for the public to help them find a disabled man who has been missing since Tuesday, when he was last seen leaving Congressman C.W. Bill Young's office in Seminole.

Robert E. Dulin, 58, was last seen at the congressman's office at 9210 113th St. about 11 a.m. Tuesday, Pinellas sheriff's officials said.

Dulin suffers from physical and mental disabilities resulting from a car crash in which he was involved in the 1970s, according to sheriff's officials.

Dulin lives at the Pine Tree Manor Assisted Living Facility, 10476 131st St. N. An administrator there reported him missing to sheriff's deputies.

Harry Glenn, Young's chief of staff, said Dulin visited the office Tuesday and asked how he could get medical care through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, even though he was not a veteran. Young's staff members told him that he had to be a veteran to get care through the VA, Glenn said.

Dulin has a distinctive gait, walking with his elbow bent so that his arm is close to his body with one or two fingers pointed outward, authorities said. Sheriff's officials also described him as having a cranial abnormality and a false eye.

He was last seen wearing a white and blue long-sleeved plaid shirt, jeans, and white tennis shoes.

Anyone with information regarding Dulin's whereabouts is asked to call the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office at (727) 582-6200.
