PALM COAST, Fla.—Authorities statewide are on the lookout for a missing 79-year-old Palm Coast, Fla. man and law enforcement is asking the public to do the same.

William Nicholson Wheat of Llewellyn Trail in Palm Coast has dementia and is considered missing and endangered. 

A Silver Alert was issued statewide for Wheat Monday at 3 p.m.

Wheat was last seen Sunday at 3 in the afternoon and last heard from at 7 p.m. by his wife. He's believed to be driving a 2015 blue Dodge Ram 1500 2-door with Florida tag 873-8HV.

He's described as a white, 5-foot-11 man weighing 130 pounds. He's got grey hair, blue eyes and surgical scars on both sides of his neck. Wheat was last seen wearing a red shirt, jeans and dark shoes. 

Since Wheat and his family have another home in Putnam County, he would often drive between homes. Putnam County deputies did a check on his home and reported he wasn't there. 

He has a cousin in Foley, Ala. and might be on his way there.

Flagler County Sheriff's deputies have gotten in touch with hospitals between Volusia, Flagler, Putnam and St. Johns counties but hasn't been seen at any facilities there.

If anyone sees Wheat, they are asked to contact the Flagler County Sheriff's Office at 386-313-4911 or call their local law enforcement.
