The Kissimmee Police Department is asking for the community’s help in locating 18-year-old Manuel Calderon who was last seen by his mother on May 7, 2019 as she dropped him off in the area around Thacker and Vine Street in Kissimmee. While the Kissimmee Police Department actively worked to locate Calderon, he was initially thought to have run away from home voluntarily. However, Calderon did not contact his mother on his birthday and has been silent on social media since he was last seen by his mother.

Following his disappearance, Calderon’s Mother received information indicating her son may have been harmed. However, no one has come forward to the Police Department with information on Calderon’s wellbeing. As detectives continue to investigate and speak with family and friends, they are asking for ANYONE with information regarding Calderon’s disappearance or current whereabouts to please come forward.

“Rumors can be hurtful to the family of a loved one who has seemingly disappeared. Positively Osceola joins KPD in asking people to come forward and provide information so that the family can know where Calderon is today.

Anyone with information about who Calderon may have been interacting with in the days leading up to May 7, or the days following his disappearance, is asked to call the Kissimmee Police Department at (407) 846-3333, or contact Crimeline anonymously and be eligible for a $1000 reward by calling 1-800-423-TIPS.
