ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -

St. Johns County sheriff's deputies are searching for a man last seen last Sunday in the northwest part of the county.

Deputies said 64-year-old Paul Dobson reportedly has an extensive medical history and drove away from a home in the 5000 block of Gracewood Lane.

"Dobson’s wife last spoke to him last night at approximately 9:30 p.m. and he told her that he was in Davey, Florida," said Catherine Payne, of the Sheriff's Office. "Dobson was driving to visit his brother in Punta Gorda, Florida. Dobson’s cell phone now appears to be off, as well as the GPS monitoring system in his vehicle."

Dobson is described as 5'8' tall, 185 pounds with brown hair and eyes. He was last seen driving a 2008 silver Chevrolet Impala with a Florida "Purple Heart" tag of 56328.
A Silver Alert has been requested and surrounding counties have been notified of his disappearance. Anyone with information on Dobson’s whereabouts is asked to contact police.
