SPRINGFIELD, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Springfield resident Felton Warren, 62, has been missing for more than a week.

"We're doing a search operation, attempting to locate Felton Warren," said Springfield Police Department's Lieutenant Russell Voyles.

Springfield Police Department, Bay County Search and Rescue, human remain dogs, and many volunteers spread through the city Saturday.

"That's going to be the house Mr. Warren was at, and the road that we just passed was Helen Avenue and this is Sanders, so he was kind of seen right here in this area," said Springfield Police Department Investigator Amanda Shanahan.

Lieutenant Voyles said people would be checking abandoned houses and tracking the area around Martin Lake.

Officials say Warren left his home around 9:30 a.m. April 12th and no one has seen him since.

"The family needs resolution at this point," said Lieutenant Voyles.

Warren also reportedly sustained a recent injury.

"He also had a head injury about a month or month and a half ago, he's been acting a little bit strange since then, according to his family and friends," said Lieutenant Voyles.

Warren's family is praying for the best.

"He's a son, a brother, uncle, he's got family that misses him and wants him home," said Warren's daughter, Cheryl Warren.

They're begging anyone with information to please come forward.

"If anybody knows anything, has seen him, has heard of anything, anything, to call into Springfield Police Department and let them know. Anything will help right now," said Warren's sister, Shirely Lusk.

The search ended around 3:30 p.m. Saturday with no trace of Warren.

Warren is not wanted by Springfield police for any reason other than a welfare check. Police said he does not have any active warrants.
