Manatee deputies looking for 'endangered adult'

MANATEE -- Deputies were trying to find a 40-year-old man who threatened to hurt himself after his girlfriend broke up with him early this morning, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

The woman ended her relationship with James Dibell during an argument at their home in the 300 block of 24th Avenue East. Dibell became distraught and "made threats to harm himself," a news release states.

The woman feared for his safety and called the sheriff's office, but he left the residence before deputies arrived.

Deputies put out an alert of Dibell, whom they called a "missing endangered adult."

Anyone with information about Dibell's whereabouts can call the sheriff's office at (941) 747-3011 or Crime Stoppers at (866) 634-TIPS.
