Family, friends search for missing man

September 19, 2009 (MIDLOTHIAN, Ill.) Tariq Ali lives with his parents on Tripp Avenue in Midlothian. He was watching television when last seen by relatives around 11 p.m. Sunday. The next day, Ali's mother noticed he was missing and called police.

Friends and loved ones searching for him Saturday said he had no problems with drugs or the law and that he gets along well with his parents. "He cooks for them. He does all the yard work. So, its not like he's just living there doing nothing. They had a good relationship," sister Sabri Ali.

Police say they do not suspect foul play in Ali's disappearance and there were no signs he was taken from his home by force.

Tariq Ali was last seen wearing a black t-shirt, camouflage cargo pants and military-style boots. Ali is 5'8", weighs 300 lbs, has long brown hair and brown/hazel eyes. He has tattoos on both forearms.

Anyone with information should contact the Midlothian Police Department (Detective Division) 708-385-2534.
