PETERSBURG, VA (WWBT) – The family of a missing Petersburg man takes their search to a new level.

27-year-old Michael Green disappeared nearly three months ago. Despite intensive search efforts there's still no sign of what happened to him.

Now, family and friends are putting his face before the public in a way that's hard to miss, on a billboard. 

"It stands out in that area. It's the first thing you see when you turn the curb. You look up and there's his face," said family friend, Evana Council.

They're hopeful the billboard, which is located on East Washington Street in Petersburg, will lead to closure.

"Mike Green is an extremely noticeable person because of his flamboyant love and expression of kindness," said Pastor Edward Council.

The day before green went missing he called 911 because he wasn't feeling well. He was transported to the hospital. Green was given a prescription and released. A roommate says Green made it home from the hospital that evening, but vanished sometime during the night -- leaving behind his ID, cell phone and keys.

Numerous fliers have been handed out over the months. Police say, their investigation continues. Green's pastor says the missing man was a member of church choir for two years at Christian Refuge Church in Hopewell.

"He was the tallest person in the church and that deep voice was something that echoed through the church. Very pleasant and we miss that," said Pastor Council.

With each passing day, those who know Green say their hearts become heavier. They're asking for your help in bringing Green home. There will be a prayer vigil for Michael Green next week. It will take place on Tuesday at 6 o'clock in the evening. The public is asked to gather at the site of the billboard which is located in the 1300 block of East Washington Street in Petersburg.
