Before he disappeared, Michael Shaver, 36, had lived with his family in unincorporated Lake County, south of Clermont. According to one of his best friends, Scott Amatuccio – who spoke to New York-based local newspaper The Daily Star in March 2018 – Shaver was “kind, gentle and smart.” He trained as a commercial pilot, but he had a “dream job” repairing rollercoasters at Walt Disney World.
