Deputies look­ing for missing-endangered adult and child

ENGLEWOOD, Fla. – Char­lotte County Sheriff’s deputies are look­ing for an Engle­wood woman who left her par­ents’ res­i­dence yes­ter­day with her 6-year-old son. She is listed as a miss­ing endan­gered adult.

Deputies are look­ing for Deb­o­rah B. Shea, 43, who left her parent’s house in the 100 block of Kings High­way in Port Char­lotte at about 9 a.m. Tues­day, April 14.

Accord­ing to a Sheriff’s Office news release, she was reported to have been awake for a pro­longed period of time and indi­cated that she believed peo­ple were after her.

Shea is described as about 5-foot-6, 110 pounds, with blonde hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wear­ing jean shorts and a black shirt. She has mul­ti­ples tattoos.

When Shea left her parent’s res­i­dence, she took her 6-year-old son, Derik Joseph Shea, with her. Derik is described as being about 4 feet tall, 90 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes. It was not known what type cloth­ing Derik was wearing.

Because of Deborah’s described con­di­tion at the time she left, both she and Derik have been listed as miss­ing and endan­gered.  Derik is also listed as miss­ing on the web­site for the National Cen­ter for Miss­ing and Exploited Children.

Shea’s res­i­dence is located in the Har­vey Street area of Engle­wood. She was report­edly seen in the area of South McCall Road and Sun­ny­brook Boule­vard later Tues­day morning.

Any­one with infor­ma­tion on the loca­tion of Deb­o­rah Shea or Derik Shea should call the Sheriff’s Office at (941) 639‑2101, or other appro­pri­ate law enforce­ment agency if out­side of Char­lotte County.
