A 33-year-old DeBary man left for a work related trip to Alabama on Oct. 28, but his family and employer reported to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office that he never made it to his destination. The Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in finding Aldon Kellum, who should be in his employer's truck. No foul play is suspected.
The Sheriff's Office was first notified about the disappearance on Thursday, Oct. 31, when his mom, who lives in Texas, called to say she had not heard from him. The mother had called Kellum's employers at C & C Utility Construction in DeBary and learned from his boss that Kellum left for Mobile on the afternoon of Oct. 28.
Deputies spoke with the employer and learned that Kellum loaded supplies for the Mobile job on that day and said that he wanted to stop in Gainesville to visit a friend on the way. He then left at 1 p.m. Several attempts were made to call Kellum's cell phone, but he didn't answer and his voicemail inbox was full. Further investigation revealed that Kellum had not visited the friend in Gainesville.
Kellum is 5'10" tall and 185 pounds. He has brown hair and blue eyes. The vehicle he should be driving is a black 2003 Dodge truck with license plate 342PQP. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call (386) 668-3830 or 911 if there is an emergency.
