Family's Search for Missing Man Ends at Florida Jail

The family of an apparently missing Kansas City man spent weeks and drove more than 1,200 miles in an effort to find him before learning that he has been in a Florida jail since the beginning of July.

The Leesburg Daily Commercial reports that 25-year-old Ricardo Gonzalez was arrested and taken to the Marion County jail after a trespassing incident on July 7.

The man's family drove from Kansas City and distributed missing-person flyers throughout central Florida in an effort to find him. An Ocala-area church helped in the search and housed the family.

A person who saw one of the fliers called the family and told them the man they were looking for was in jail.
