Details of Disappearance

Hobbs was last seen in Gulf County, Florida on April 17, 2019. He lived with his daughter and son-in-law and their three children in Macclenny, Florida; he had moved there from his home in Kinard, Florida in the fall of 2018 after Hurricane Michael hit the area. On April 12, Hobbs's daughter drove him back to Kinard for a visit. When she returned on April 20 to pick him up, he was nowhere to be found.

On the day of Hobbs's disappearance, he visited the home of a friend, Mack Morgan, in Kinard, Florida. Later that day he and two other friends went to the Creek Stop Convenience Store in Wewahitchka. He has never been heard from again. After his disappearance, the gray shirt Hobbs had been wearing was found at the home of Dwight Morgan, Mack's brother.

During his stay in Kinard in the days prior to going missing, Hobbs visited several family members. They last saw him on April 13. When they couldn't find Hobbs and tried calling his cellular phone, another person answered. This person, an acquaintance of Hobbs, had reset the phone to factory settings and changed the voice mail message to his own. The police recovered the phone the day Hobbs was reported missing.

Calhoun County, Florida police are investigating Hobbs's disappearance. It's uncharacteristic of him to leave without warning and there is concern for his safety.
