Missing Man Reported from Seventh District

The NOPD is searching for a man last seen riding an unknown vehicle.

The missing person’s sister told police that she last saw her brother, Melvin Hendricks (DOB: 02/4/70) on May 5, 2017 at about 5:00 p.m. at a gas station at the intersection of Downman Road and Chef Menteur Highway. At the time, Hendricks was seen alone and driving an unknown make and model blue pick-up truck with brown panels on the sides. 

Hendricks’ family does not believe that the vehicle is registered to him nor do they know who the vehicle belongs to. The missing person is known to frequent the 9000 block of Chef Menteur Highway.
