The Tampa Police Department needs help locating Jeffrey Comer.

Subject Comer was last seen by a friend on 04/29/12 at 1400 hours at his residence located on Harbor Island. Subject Comer was loading his paddle board onto his vehicle. Comer's paddle board was found adrift by a boater near Holmes Beach at approximately 2330 hours on this same date. The recovery was not reported to authorities until the morning of 04/30/12. The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office later located Comer's vehicle parked at Mullet Key, near Desoto Park. The vehicle showed no signs of foul play. A later search of Comer's apartment showed nothing out of the ordinary. Comer was a competition paddle boarder. No known medical problems and no history of mental illness.
