On April 16, a Florida Silver Alert was issued for Gary Belleisle driving a silver 2013 Toyota out of North Fort Myers. Districts One, Four, Five, Six, Seven, and the Turnpike immediately activated their dynamic messaging systems and highway advisory radio, informing travelers to be on the lookout for the missing gentleman. Fortunately, Turnpike Road Ranger Wesley Matlock spotted the vehicle near the I-595 interchange just outside of Lee County. Once alerted, the Florida Highway Patrol arrived on scene to follow the vehicle and return Mr. Belleisle home safely. The FDOT Management office extends its gratitude to Wesley for his keen detection and quick response.
