UPDATE Feb. 22: Thomas Roland Eastman was found healthy and safe in an assisted-living facility.

The Winter Garden Police Department has issued a Silver Alert for 88-year-old Thomas Roland Eastman. A family member who lives out of state requested a well check on the man — who resides at Lot 195 of the Winter Garden RV Resort, 13905 W. Colonial Drive, Winter Garden — but Eastman was not there.

The family member has not seen or heard from Eastman since Wednesday, Feb. 10. The missing man has a pacemaker and has been having difficulty finding his way around lately, his family said.

Eastman is a white male, five feet eight inches and 160 pounds with white hair and hazel eyes. A silver 2017 Nissan Versa with the Florida tag EQTW16 is registered to Eastman and has not been seen at the residence since Feb. 10, police said.

Anyone with information in reference to this investigation is asked to contact Detective Cody Hudson at (407) 656-3636 or CrimeLine at (407) 836-TIPS.

This is similar to the vehicle Thomas Roland Eastman drives.
