    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Police in Jacksonville are asking for the public's help in locating Earnest Overcash, 59.

    The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said they responded to the 1100 block of Barrs Street where he was reported missing. Police were told he left his residential facility around 7 a.m. on Monday.

    Overcash reportedly told employees he was going for a walk and has never returned.  

    This is said to be out of character for him, JSO said.

    He is 5 feet and 11 inches tall and weighs 180 pounds. He has green eyes and gray hair. 

    Police are unsure of the clothing Overcash was wearing at the time of his disappearance.
    If you see him, you asked to call JSO at 904-630-0500 or email JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org.
