Around noon, the police in Daytona Beach, FL were notified that an elderly tourist had gone missing. The tourist had checked out of his hotel in Daytona the day before, but had never checked in to the hotel in Cocoa Beach where he had a reservation. Very early in the search they found the missing man's wallet. The man had stopped at a small bar near the beach for lunch, and apparently left his wallet behind by accident. The staff in the diner remembered the man being very friendly, that he enjoyed his lunch, that he said he was looking forward to visiting Cape Canaveral, and that he hoped the weather would clear up soon. Feeling they were on the right track, the police launched a man hunt along all roads between Daytona Beach and Cocoa Beach and notified all the local agencies in that area.
Six hours later, there was no sign of the missing man. The police chief was about to order search boats to begin checking the local waterways when one of his detectives arrived for the night shift. The chief explained the situation to the new detective. After looking over the evidence, the detective made a single phone call. Two hours later the detective and the chief had found the missing man.

Was the missing man the detective's father?
Did the phone call indicate that detectives should begin searching locations around Cape Canaveral instead of around Cocoa Beach?
Did he go up in a space shuttle?
No. But that would have been awesome.

Wasn't this one of the many sub-plots in Fletch?
I've never seen/heard/read Fletch, so I can't say.
Did he actually head toward Cocoa Beach?
Does he work for NASA or the Cape?
No. He really was just a tourist.
Is the detective related to this man?
