47-year-old Joseph Clopton was last seen in the 6600 block of South Justine Street on Dec. 16.

On Saturday, flyers in hands, family and friends hit the street to spread the word of his disappearance.

“We out here looking for my father,” son Jeron Clopton said. “He’s been missing for a week and a couple days, we want him to come back home."

Clopton, 5’10” and 160 lbs., was last seen driving a 2003 Maroon colored Dodge four door pickup truck bearing Illinois license plate BT68436.

He was wearing a black Gucci skull cap with green and red trim, a black Columbia jacket, blue jeans and black Timberland boots. Clopton has a tattoo on his lower right arm that says “no face no case."
