Two elderly people with signs of dementia missing from Hernando County have been found

UPDATE | Felipe Caride and Juanita Garcia were found in Taylor County, FL after their vehicle ran out of gas on U.S. 19. They will be reunited with their family shortly.

ORIGINAL STORY | A Silver Alert has been issued after two elderly people in Hernando County were reported missing.

Juanita Garcia has dementia and Felipe Caride has started showing signs of dementia.

They were last seen Monday at about 4 p.m. when they left their Glade Rd. home in Spring Hill.

Caride was driving a silver, 2001 Nissan Pathfinder with Florida tag Y69IWL.

Caride, 89, is 5'4" and weighs 100 lbs. with gray hair (balding) and brown eyes. Garcia, 86, is 5'4" and weighs 100 lbs, with brown, shoulder length hair and brown eyes.

Caride is believed to be wearing a brown multi-colored button up t-shirt and blue jean shorts. Garcia is believed to be wearing a green jacket, pink t-shirt and blue jeans.

The two reportedly may be traveling to Texas, and the last ping on their cell phone showed them near Perry, heading north on U.S. 19.

If anyone has seen Caride's vehicle, or know their current whereabouts, please call the Hernando County Sheriff's Office at 352-754-6830 or your local law enforcement agency.
