He returned to the parking lot at 7:55 p.m. and discovered his golf cart had vanished. Restaurant staffers told Malacarne they saw a man drive away in the golf cart.

Malacarne’s golf cart had a U.S. Virgin Islands registration plate on the back that read RESCUE 4. He and his wife live in the U.S. Virgin Islands and are in The Villages enjoying some vacation time in their second home.
