TAMPA, Fla — Todd Henderson last saw his son Matthew on September 24th. He dropped off Matthew at the corner of Fletcher and Nebraska around 8:30 P.M. that Friday night in Tampa to meet up with a friend.
After not hearing from Matt, Todd called the police. They checked the likely spots but had no luck.
“It only leaves me with a lot of guesses and what if’s,” said Todd Henderson. “We didn’t have an argument there was nothing like that going on. He seemed very calm…. I cry. But I always have to hope that that next phone call will be him or someone who’s found him.”
Matthew has schizoaffective disorder. It’s a severe mental disorder that requires medication. But with medication, attention and love, they saw so much success.
“I always think of matt’s smile and he’s always had a wonderful smile as a kid. His smile and his kindness - a kind and warm person,” said Henderson. “I’d like that gift back. I really would. I miss him so much. It’s only been a few days. But I really miss him.”
Anyone with information on Matthew is asked to call Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at 813-247-8200.
