MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - A Memphis family is desperate to find a Mid-South man they say has been missing for weeks.

Wednesday, Crystal Thomas said she's been worried sick since her brother, Marlon Thomas, disappeared two weeks ago.

"I've been sitting up here crying everyday," she said. "I'm not getting any sleep, and I'm barely eating."

She's also been calling her brother's phone every day, but he hasn't answered.

"He usually picks up," she said. "I don't care what time of day or night. He's going to pick up for me."

Crystal said her brother recently moved in with her. He was last seen leaving the house in his car on June 16.  Memphis Police found Marlon Thomas' vehicle at the Raleigh Village Apartments Sunday, but there's still no sign of him.

"I was thankful that we did get the car," Crystal said. "It's still in police possession but I would rather have him."

Police say they do not suspect foul play, but Crystal says she does.

"I can see if my brother was on drugs, or he did this regularly, but this is out of the ordinary," she said. "I knew this is not him. Something is wrong."

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

"They say he hasn't called nor has he shown up and they're very concerned," Crystal said.

Crystal and her family won't give up until Marlon is back home.

"It hurts so bad in my stomach, but I'm going to continue to look for him until I find him," she said.

If you have information about the disappearance of Marlon Thomas, call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
