MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Memphis police continued their search Tuesday for a Mid-South man who disappeared more than a week ago.

The disappearance of Marlon Thomas has police puzzled.

"It's been about a week and a half since he's been last seen," Memphis Police Department spokesperson Karen Rudolph said Tuesday. "He was last seen by a sister."

According to investigators, Thomas was last seen on June 16, leaving his home in his car.  Police recently found Thomas' vehicle, but no sign of him.

"(The car) didn't show signs of foul play," Rudolph said. "Nothing was missing.  No damage to the vehicle."

Thomas has two jobs, and has not shown up for either one of them since he disappeared.

"He was an excellent employee and always showed up for work," Rudolph said. "That was one of the things that raised red flags - when he didn't show up or continue with his normal routine."

Investigators are still holding on to hope that Thomas will be located.

"We haven't received any new information as far as his whereabouts," Rudolph said. "We have flyers out.  All the officers have information and photos of him looking in all the areas."

Thomas is 6 feet tall and weighs around 220 pounds.  If you have information that could help police in their search, call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
