Foul play suspected in man's disappearance

Pasco County, Florida -- The Pasco County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's assistance in finding a missing Pasco Man.

69-year-old Billy Shuler was reported missing Thursday by his wife after not returning to his home on Hemlock Court after a meeting on Wednesday. Shuler left his residence at 11 a.m. on May 21, to visit an acquaintance in Holiday.

Shuler sells collectible coins and on Wednesday he was meeting a man with whom he has a working business relationship, Anthony Maresca. They were possibly meeting for a transaction on collectible coins.

Detective traced Shuler's phone to a local storage unit at 53334 Provost Drive where he purportedly met with Maresca. Shuler's truck was found and the surrounding evidence points to foul play.

Shuler is believed to be somewhere in the Tarpon area, where Maresca was seen last.

Anyone with any information about either men is asked to call Tampa Bay Crimestoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS. You can also leave a tip via the website at
