The Jacksonville Beach Police Department is asking the public’s assistance in locating a missing man from the beaches area. Police released information Wednesday night about 38-year-old Eric John Gattes’ disappearance.

Gattes’ vehicle, a 1994 four-door, green Geo Prism, was located at a business on Mayport Road Monday.

Investigators said Gattes is homeless and was believed to be living in the vehicle. Gattes’ fiancé and father told police that Gattes has medical conditions and that he does not have the medication with him. 

Police are asking anyone who may have seen Gattes or has information on where he is to contact the Jacksonville Beach Police Department at 904-270-1661.
