LEESBURG, Fla. – Deputies are asking for the public’s help in finding a Leesburg man reported missing.

Shelton was last seen by his neighbors Friday as he went for a walk near his home on Plumosa Drive. Officials said Shelton hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

Shelton drives a blue four-door 2017 Chevrolet Sonic with Florida tag IJE-Z31, which is not at the home, officials said.
