A Brewton family is staying positive about finding Eddie Lee McCreary, 63, who went missing Wednesday in Pensacola.

“The police are on the job,” his wife, Bonnie, said Friday. “They are staying in touch with us.”

McCreary was last seen by a relative around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to Pensacola Police.

He was wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans. His car was found later that day in the 3800 block of Cherry Laurel Drive in Pensacola.

Det. Danny Harnett of the Pensacola Police Department said McCreary has various medical problems and left his medications in Brewton.

Eddie McCreary is a black male, about 6 feet 2 inches and 300 pounds.

He has salt and pepper hair and sometimes wears glasses.

Bonnie McCreary said her husband is retired after 29 years working with UPS.

Anyone who may have seen McCreary or knows his location is asked to contact Harnett at 850-435-1979 or the Pensacola Police Department at 850-435-1900.
