PETERSBURG, VA (WWBT) - A plea for help tonight from loved ones of a missing Petersburg man. 27 year old Michael Green hasn't been seen or heard from in nearly three weeks. Now, his family and friends fear the worst.

Fliers are being handed out, posted, and stuffed in mailboxes throughout Petersburg.  All in effort to find Green.

"It's getting harder and harder each day," said Green's girlfriend, Natashia Chamberlain.

Green hasn't been seen in 19 days which family and friends say is highly unusual.

"We've contacted all police authority in the area, all the hospitals, we even resorted to going under John Doe because he didn't have his driver's license with him," said Chamberlain.

The missing man is without his cell phone and ID. Items his roommate says Green never leaves home without.

"He doesn't go as far as the bathroom without his cell phone, so the fact that the phone was left on the bed is a major concern to me," said Tyrone Hudson.

Friends say, the day before he went missing Green called 911 and was transported to the hospital because he wasn't feeling well. Doctors gave him a prescription for anxiety and recommended he take two pills four times a day.

"It doesn't seem like his prescription has been filled, so he's not on his meds," said Hudson.

Green was last seen at home after being released from the hospital.

"I opened his room door to make sure he was okay. He was curled up in the bed under covers, "said Hudson.

Hudson's says biggest fear "is that he's somewhere unconscious and nobody can see him or find him.  He's a good person and we just need all the help in the world to find him."

Loved ones say they'll keep pounding the pavement and looking for answers until this mystery is solved.

"All I can do is keep faith in god and pray he's okay, "said Chamberlain.

If you have any information on Green's whereabouts you're urged to contact Petersburg Police or Crime Solvers at 861-1212.
