Circumstances

Newton Humphrey Whidden was last seen at a pharmacy. It was located in the 4800 block of 10th Street in Sarasota, Florida. This incident occurred on August 20, 2012. He left his cell phone behind at the pharmacy and has never been heard from again.

Whidden’s vehicle was found abandoned. It is described as a white 2000 Dodge Caravan. It reportedly has minor damage on the front bumper and the Florida license plate number A18-3XI. It was found abandoned in a ditch in a rural area outside of Okeechobee, Florida. It was located nearly 100 miles from Sarasota. An extensive search turned up no sign of him.

Whidden’s keys, wallet, checkbook and identification could not be located. He was evidently carrying them when he disappeared.

Whidden was in good health at the time of his disappearance, although his daughter stated he sometimes became confused. He is described as a history buff and avid outdoorsman who may visit sites of historical interest. He worked for the U.S. Postal Service and, after his retirement in 1973, sold real estate. His case remains unsolved.

Appeal

Newton Humphrey Whidden has been missing for over six years. The Silver Alert for him is apparently still active. I see this as a good thing and I wish Silver Alerts always would stay active until the missing person is found. But happened to Whidden surrounding the time that he was last seen at the pharmacy? For he left his cell phone behind. Did Whidden know anyone who would have any motive to harm him? Do you have any information concerning the whereabouts of Newton Humphrey Whidden and/or his keys, wallet, checkbook, and/or identification? Do you have any information concerning the person (s) who may be involved in his disappearance?

If you have any information, contact the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office (Florida) at: 1-941-861-4934 or 1-941-861-5800. You may contact the FDLE Missing Endangered Persons Information Clearinghouse at: 1-888-FL MISSING at: 1-888-356-4774. You may call 9-1-1 or your local police.
