James Marshal Woodfin (File)
MERIDIAN (June 25, 2012)--Sheriff's deputies in Bosque County said Monday they believe a man missing from Meridian may be in the Cleveland area in Southeast Texas and are continuing to ask for the public's help in finding him.
James Marshal Woodfin, 50, was last seen at 9 a.m. on June 18 at his residence at Private Road 2619.
Woodfin is 6-feet, 5-inches tall and weighs about 150 pounds.
He was last seen wearing a gray T-shirt and blue jeans with flip-flop-style shoes.
Woodfin is a diabetic and has other medical issues, Potts said, and authorities and his family are concerned about his medical condition.
Cleveland is in southeast Texas, just east of Conroe.
Potts said there is no indication of foul play in the disappearance.
Deputies have conducted several searches, both in daylight and after dark, in and around the place where Woodfin was last seen.
His family members also have been searching for him since Monday.
Potts said Bosque County deputies have called hospitals and police agencies between Dallas and Austin to find out if they might have encountered a "John Doe" who has not been identified.
Potts said Woodfin is not carrying any identification with him.
Potts said Woodfin is believed to be on foot.
Because Woodfin is diabetic and in immediate need of medication, if encountered he might appear disoriented or confused.
Anyone with any information about Woodfin is asked to call the Bosque County Sheriff's Office at (254) 435-2353.
