Sisters look for long-lost brother in Jacksonville

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Two sisters have searched for years for their brother. Finally, their search has brought them to Jacksonville. 

They suspect their brother is living on the streets and now they hope they can find him and bring him home. They've been checking the jail and homeless shelters. Now they are asking for the public's help.

It was 1983: "It's been 30 years since I've seen my brother Floyd," Charlane Dwight said. "When I last saw him, I was only 11 years old."

Floyd Dwight's sisters say he left their hometown of Charleston, South Carolina to find adventure. 

That adventure quickly turned to misfortune. A new possible life his sisters can't believe he may be living. A string of arrests, and possibly no home. 

"Out of the 11 arrests, the most severe where he spent five months was he was trying to steal metal. He told the officer in the report that he just needed some money to stay alive," Charlane Dwight said.

Now his two sisters are on a mission and a search they say is long overdue.

"We made fliers and passed them out to different homeless shelters, to the park," sister Virgie Green said.

Their mother turned 80 last year. The sisters want to bring their brother home before it's too late for him to see his mother. They also want to help their brother turn his life around.
