SPRING HILL – A funeral services employee disappeared without a trace yesterday, leaving family and friends baffled and desperately searching his last known location.
According to George and Wendy Marvella, their son 30-year-old Paul Marvella disappeared Sunday after delivering a body to Jacksonville.
Paul works for Alternative Transport Services and was driving their company vehicle, a 2014, black, GMC Yukon, bearing Florida tag DNS K41, with a gold funeral wreath emblem on the side and rear windows.
George says a friend last spoke to Paul in around 7:30 p.m. Sunday, when he was just outside of Stark, traveling on US-301.
Paul was expected to be home by 10:00 p.m. but he was never heard from again. George says that Paul’s cell phone was turned off just after midnight in the Ocala area. He stressed that Paul never turns his phone off because he is always on call.
George and Wendy are canvassing the area around the College of Central Florida, which is located in Ocala between SW College Road and I-75.
Family says Paul does not have a history of substance abuse and has not been depressed or acting unusual in any way.
The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office is aware of the situation and has issued a BOLO for Marvella.
Paul may be wearing black pants and a blue dress shirt.
Family is asking that you contact them at 727-247-2133 or your local Law Enforcement agency if you have any information regarding Paul Marvella’s whereabouts.
