DELTONA, Fla. —

A 39-year-old Deltona man hasn't been seen since late Monday afternoon and investigators are asking for the public's help in finding him.

Volusia County sheriff's officials said Raymond Cruz left his Deltona home around 5 p.m. and was last seen walking along Abagail Drive.

Cruz, who officials said has the mental capacity of a teenager, was wearing blue jeans, a black shirt with short gray sleeves and black and white checkered sneakers.

Cruz is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs approximately 185 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes, according to investigators.

Officials said family members told them they don't believe Cruz is in danger and that he likes to take long walks but usually returns within 24 hours.

Anyone who sees Cruz or has information on his whereabouts is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at (386) 736-5999 or 911 if there’s an emergency.
