Information Sought in Missing Person
Polk County Sheriff's Office detectives are seeking information about a Winter Haven man who has been missing since Monday (Oct. 1,2001). Twenty-six year-old Charles Howard Kindred (known as C.H. Kindred) was last seen the morning of Oct. 1, after he dropped his children off at daycare and then traveled to a Lake Wales auto parts store.

Foul play is suspected. His work truck was found abandoned at a Lakeland Speedway convenience store located at Combee Road and A-Z Parkway. He is described as a white male, approximately 5' 10” tall, 120-125 lbs., sandy blonde and brown hair, blue eyes and wears glasses. Kindred has a skin condition, which makes his body appear as though he is burned. The condition also causes his skin to shed and crack. He was last seen wearing a striped t-shirt, blue jean shorts, and a Florida Gators ball cap. To speak with a detective regarding this case contact John Joiner at 863-534-6379.

Anyone who has information leading to the discovery of Kindred's whereabouts, wants to remain anonymous, and be eligible for up to a $10,000 reward is asked to call Polk County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS. Anonymity is Guaranteed!
