Title: Assistance in Locating a Missing Disabled Adult

Case Number: 2022-55347

Date: August 10, 2022

What: The Pinellas Park Police department is asking for assistance from our
media partners in helping to locate a disabled 34-year-old adult male who has
been listed as missing by our agency. The missing disabled adult is Thomas
Phanphilathip who has been missing since July 27, 2022, when he rode away from
his group home on his bicycle (photo attached).

Thomas is described as an Asian male, 5'05" / 180 lbs with black hair and
brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a gray tank top, and blue basketball
shorts, with either black flip-flops or gray and black LeBron James sneakers.
His bike is a 24" Nishiki Pueblo mountain bike that is teal and purple in
color. Thomas is developmentally delayed and has no known family in the area.
In the past, he has been known to frequent fast food restaurants in the area
of 62nd Street and 9th Ave N. in St Petersburg and he has frequented the area
of Holiday in Pasco County.

A Purple Alert has already been issued for Thomas through FDLE.

At this time investigators don't believe his missing status to be the result
of suspicious activity and we are only trying to locate his whereabouts and
return him safely to his group home. Anyone with information is asked to
contact the Pinellas Park Police Department. 727-369-7864
