My husband Roy L. Hackett is a missing endangered person. He was last seen Tuesday, December 17, 2013 in Pensacola, FL. He left on his sailboat and has not been seen since. He is believed to have taken a dog with him (golden lab cross) heading toward the Floriday Keys or toward Texas. He was previously employed as a commercial diver, has been working in boat maintenance for the past couple years. Roy had been living on his sailboat at a marina in Pensacola, FL.
Sailboat description: 1984 - 36’ Mao Ta cutter, double ender, 4’ bow sprint, fiberglass hull, fixed keel- 6’ draft, 48’ mast, teak rail, teak toe rail, main sail, stay sail, bag jib sail. Last painted cream with hunter green hip stripe and water line stripe. Brown sail covers (very worn). 10' hard side white dinghy. Previous name on boat “Summer” but removed fall 2013.

I cannot believe this has happened.
Please forward to anyone along the coast line of the GOM.
Roy is 40 years old. 5'-10" tall, approx 185 pounds, brown/grey hair, blue eyes, wears glasses, has false tooth on right upper, numerous tattoos.
Please contact the Escambia County Sheriff's Department 850-436-9620, case number 036469 and myself 608-792-4897. He will be listed in the Flordia Missing Endangered Persons data base. The US Coast Guard has also been contacted.
I can post photos but I am new to this site and don't know how. I would like to reach out to all boating communities for help.
Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
