The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office is asking for public assistance in locating two missing adults.

Aaron H. Seitz (pictured left), age 26, has not been seen since Sunday, June 2. He walked away from West Florida Community Care, on Stewart Street in Milton. Seitz, a resident of Crestview, is a white male, five-foot-nine inches tall, about 200 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes, and will most likely present an unshaven appearance. He was last seen wearing gym shorts, a T-shirt, and ankle-high black boots. He suffers from paranoid schizophrenia, but is described as not confrontational.

Valerie Tara Brown (pictured right) of Mary Esther, has not been seen since late last night Tuesday night, June 11). She failed to show up for work today (Wednesday) at Mix-103 Radio in Destin where she is an on-air personality. She is a white female, 29 years old, five-foot-seven, 125 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes. She was driving a silver 1997 Honda Civic and may be in the company of a black male named Ed Brown.
