The St. Joe County man once thought to be missing is no longer.

Sources tell NewsCenter16 that the missing persons case for Douglas Wilcox, 62, has been closed. Surveillance videos show Wilcox using a credit card in the area, meaning that he is alive and well.

Last weekend, Wilcox disappeared on the same day that the house had just recently foreclosed on had nearly burned down. Wilcox was supposed to hand over the keys to the owner that afternoon.

The investigation into the fire at Wilcox’s house on Sandybrook Lane continues. The Fire Marshal met with the insurance company on Monday. We do know that the blaze started in the basement as a slow burn.

It has been deemed “suspicious” and investigators have yet to find any evidence of “accidental causes.”
