Wilguens is described as being 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighing 170 pounds. He was last seen wearing red sandals, blue jeans, and a white Special Olympics Shirt with “Haiti” written on it.

Wilguens is the seventh delegate representing Haiti to go missing from the All-Star Sports Resort.

Also missing are Antione Mithon, 32; Nicholson Fontilus, 20; Peter Berlus, 19; Anderson Petit-Frere, 18; Steevenson Jacquet, 24; and Oriol Jean, 18, reports show.

The six men — only one of which is identified as a Special Olympics athlete — were last seen Monday, June 6, near the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Kissimmee. That is where the Special Olympics USA Games was taking place.

According to the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, the men turned in their room keys and left behind their personal bags and belongings.

The Special Olympics USA Games said in a statement they do not know why the men left the area.

“The well-being of this delegate is our foremost concern. Local authorities have indicated they have no reason to believe the health and safety of this individual is at risk,” the official statement said.

Anyone with information about the missing men is asked to call the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office at 407-348-2222.
