Ft. Lauderdale, FL – Troubled millionaire Guma Aguiar who disappeared at sea may be alive and in a “delusional state or be suffering from psychosis,” according to a legal document obtained by ABC News and filed by Aguiar’s mother.
Ellen Aguiar filed the court documents with the Broward County Circuit Court on Thursday to become the conservator or temporary guardian of Aguiar’s estate, which is valued at more than $100 million.
On Wednesday morning, Aguiar’s 31-foot fishing boat washed up on a Fort Lauderdale beach with the engine running and lights on, but with no sign of its Brazilian-born owner.
The U.S. Coast Guard and multiple police agencies launched a search for Aguiar, but the Coast Guard search suspended their search on Thursday night.
The suspension of the search, Aguiar’s mother’s legal filing and the lack of a body have raised questions about what exactly happened on Aguiar’s boat after he left his dock on Tuesday night.
