ENDANGERED #MISSING: Salvatore Gambino, 82 - Clermont, FLORIDA (has electric wheelchair - paralyzed on one side of his body)

A massive search is underway in Lake County for a Clermont man.
Salvatore Gambino, 82, was last seen Friday evening near Grand Highway and Hunt Street in his electric wheelchair.
He's paralyzed on one side of his body.
Police have set up a mobile command post. Police, along with multiple agencies, and more than 100 volunteers are taking part in the search.
Family members said it's not unusual for Gambino to ride his electric wheelchair until it dies, but he has always found a way to make it home.
Search crews used dogs and a helicopter during the search. Dive teams have checked several local lakes.  
Gambino's daughter, Josephine Gambino-Vazquez, said she's especially worried since more than 48 hours have passed.
"Basically, it's anxiety right now 'cause we just want to find him. Whether it be good news or bad news, we want to find him," Gambino-Vasquez said.
Police said they recorded a reverse 911 call that's expected to go out to more than 32,000 numbers in the area.
