In November of 2021, the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office issued a plea to the community to help in the search for a suicidal and possibly armed man named Kyle Feeney. Kyle also goes by the name Turtle and is 6-feet, 4-inches tall with brown hair, blue eyes, with glasses. He may be in possession of a firearm.
Still missing, detectives received information that Feeney may be driving a gold 2000 Mercedes Benz E Class, bearing Florida tag/JRKE46, at various times over the last several weeks. They aren’t sure if he is still in possession of or driving this vehicle.
Originally, Feeney’s ex-girlfriend contacted authorities, concerned he may attempt suicide as she received messages from him indicating that he might harm himself. Now authorities say his ex-girlfriend has received text messages from Feeney threatening her own safety as recently as Jan. 3, 2022.
Feeney may be in the New Port Richey area of Pasco County and may be accompanied by a woman named Megan Rider.
Law enforcement advises not to approach him.
