Guma Aguiar 'could be alive and suffering from psychosis,' claims his mother as she files to be guardian of $100 million assets...not his wife

The mother of Guma Aguiar, the missing Brazilian-born, Jewish philanthropist, has said that her son may still be alive, wandering the streets of Fort Lauderdale after experiencing a nervous breakdown.

In a petition filed to a Florida court to seize his $100 million fortune, Ellen Aguiar stated that Aguiar 'may be in a delusional state or be suffering from psychosis or otherwise may have disappeared.'

Submitting documents to the Broward County Clerk of Courts, Mrs Aguiar is seeking to become the conservator and guardian of Aguiar's estate following his disappearance on Wednesday after his empty motorboat washed ashore on a Fort Lauderdale beach.

In her petition, Mrs Aguiar claimed that, 'The Absentee disappeared as the result of mental derangement, or other mental cause, or, in the alternative, disappeared under circumstances indicating that he may have died, either naturally, accidentally, or at the hand of another.'

Court documents seen by ABC News show that on May 11, Aguiar amended his declaration which designated guardianship over assets 'in the event of my incapacity' from his wife Jamie Aguiar to his mother.
