TAMPA — Police were searching Wednesday evening for a mentally handicapped man who walked away from his new apartment as his mother was moving their things in.

Jermaine Earl Robinson, 25, disappeared from the apartment in the 2900 block of Wilder Avenue around 2:30 p.m., Tampa police said.

His mom searched for him for more than two hours before calling police. A police bloodhound was being used to try to track Robinson, but there has been no sign of him since he walked away.

He has a thin build and brown, low-cut hair and was last seen wearing long-sleeve black shirt, black jeans and sneakers.

Anyone with information about Robinson can contact Tampa police at (813)231-6130.
