PLANO –  Plano police have called in a multijurisdictional cooperative of 11 search-and-rescue agencies in its search for a 54-year-old man last seen March 21.

Paul Scull Sr., of Plano, was last seen in the 500 block of East Steward Street in Plano wearing gray sweatpants, two T-shirts – one gray, the other black – and size 14 black tennis shoes.

Scull is a 6-foot-2-inch, 350-pound white male with blue eyes and a bald head. He has diabetes and congestive heart failure. There is no known vehicle involved, and nothing to indicate foul play, Plano Police Lt. Jonathan Whowel said.

“He had an argument with his family and walked away,” Whowel said. “The family said that he might be in the woods. So far, there have been a few tips, but nothing concrete. We’re just trying to rule everything out.”

More than 50 volunteers have been involved in the search. As of press time, police had no new indications of Scull’s whereabouts.

Attempts to contact Scull’s family for comment were not successful.

If anyone sees a person matching Scull’s description or has any information about his whereabouts, they are asked to contact the Plano Police Department at 630-552-3122.
