Missing/Endangered Person – Public Help Needed

The Levy County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s assistance in locating James Bailey. Mr. Bailey is described as a white male, 63 years old, 5’-8”, 155 pounds. He is currently clean shaven. Mr. Bailey was last seen at his son’s home where he was living. The home is located at 32 Knotts Way in Yankee Town, Fl. at 0800 this morning. This is in the area of Cattail Creek RV Park.

Mr. Bailey has only been living in the Florida area for a few months and had very few contacts here. He left the home accompanied by his dog, described as a gray and white shih-tzu. He does not have the animal on a leash and the animal could have wandered away from him. Family reports he left the home on foot and does not have access to any vehicles.

Mr. Bailey has a history of violent seizures and was due for his medication at 1800 hours this evening. He walks with a noticeable limp and has to frequently rest. Family also reports he is exhibiting early signs of dementia and has recently questioned them why he was in Florida, and where his wife is. Family reports she passed away approximately 4 months ago in Indiana.

If anyone has any information about Mr. Bailey's whereabouts, or locates a lost dog as described above, please contact LCSO at 1-800-538-9767 or 352-486-5111.
