The search was on over the weekend for a driver whom police say hit and killed a man late Friday in Chicago's Humboldt Park neighborhood.

A man found dead on a street in Humboldt Park was the victim of a hit-and-run driver.

The body of 39-year-old Juan Barcenas was found late Friday night in the 1500-block of North Spaulding.

A driver spotted him lying in the street with tire marks on his torso, according to Chicago police.

His daughter is hoping whoever hit him will turn him or herself in.

"I'm begging you. You took my dad, but I don't have anger for you. But if you did it, please come forward," said the victim's daughter Yoselin Barcenas.

Police have ruled his death an accident, but the investigation is still under way.
