*Update* Deputies Searching For Missing Man

*UPDATE* James Yonk III has been located and is safe.

Deputies are searching for a 65-year-old North Naples man who has been missing since Tuesday.

Deputies said James Yount III was last seen by his family at their residence in the Monterey community on Tuesday. He had cell phone contact with family members around 2 a.m. Wednesday and was possibly in the Broward County area.

Deputies said Yount is described as white, 6 feet 3 inches tall, 170 pounds and is bald with blue eyes.

He may be driving a white Pontiac G6 convertible with the Florida license plate number 705HFJ.

Deputies said family members are concerned because Yount is diabetic and did not take his medication with him.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Collier County Sheriff's Office at 252-9300.
