CLEARWATER, Fla. (WFLA) – Two Clearwater detectives will travel to Tallahassee on Monday to be with the family of Zachary Bernhardt as part of the 2015 FDLE Florida Missing Children’s Day Ceremony.

Bernhardt is still missing. He was 8-years-old when he disappeared from his apartment at 2690 Drew St. on September 11, 2000. Investigators say he was last known to be sleeping in his bed at about 4 a.m. on the day that he was reported missing.
