Deputies Find Man Who Disappeared in Florida Park

A missing man was found in Pasco County.


Deputies say a man who disappeared after dropping his teenage son off at a Florida campsite has been found.

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office says Pablo Montanez was located Saturday safe and unharmed. No further details were released.

The 57-year-old man had last been seen at Starkey Park in New Port Richey Friday at 7 p.m.

Investigators say witnesses saw Montanez drive away from the campsite in the wrong direction on a dirt hiking path.

Continuing along the same path would have led him onto a paved bike path and further into the 8,000 acre park.

A park ranger encountered Montanez along the path was the last person to see him.
