    This is so sad. Mr. Hughes has been severely depressed since his wife died suddenly a few days after Thanksgiving. I hope he is found safe and gets the help he needs.

    A Family's Cry for Help to find Willis Hughes

    "I don't think there's anybody in the family that's been able to sleep, or continue to carry on with their lives normally as long as Willis is not around," said Izell Hughes, Willis Hughes's Brother.

    "We don't know if we buried our aunt on the 30th, to have to bury our uncle later. Just not knowing, I know I couldn't survive this cold. I know I wouldn't abandon my house, my job, and I know my uncle wouldn't. So all I ask from the police department and the public is just some help," said Hope Hughes. his niece.

    Davenport police seeking help to find missing man

    Mr. Hughes had been making disturbing statements, such as telling everyone goodbye, so family had him screened, she said, adding that he was cleared in the screening, but loved ones continued to keep a close eye on him.

    The day he went missing, he left his sister's, where he'd been staying, and went to his apartment near 7th and Perry streets, she said. Family went to talk to him, but he wouldn't come out

    She described him as a gentle giant and said he answers to the nickname "Rabbit. He's like a big teddy bear."

    Quad Cities Missing Persons Facebook Page Created -

    The "Quad Cities Missing Persons Network" Facebook page was created late Wednesday night by a man who knows a lot about what it's like to search for a missing loved one.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Here is a new twist in the case I hadn't noticed yet. Look at the poster at the bottom of the page:

    Willie's family is seeking information on a woman last seen with Willie. Do they not know how to contact the woman, or is she also missing?

    This is so sad! I hope he is found, but it isn't looking too good since he hasn't used his credit cards or cell phone since his disappearance.

    I wonder who that woman is and how she knows him. I wish they would release a little more info.

    Leanne and her family have held two searches, handed out countless fliers, and even created a Facebook page with nearly 3 thousand 'likes.' Still, no luck.

    "We can't expect anything. Us as a family, we know it's really on us to get the word out there and do the searches, we can't depend on other people," said Leanne...

    "He did leave several messages to certain family members that, wasn't necessarily saying that he was going to hurt himself, but it was saying that... he was using past tense," said Leanne.

    Sunday, January 24th, 2014 was the search dogs last day in the Quad Cities after spending four days looking for any trace of 29-year-old Carrie Olson or 45-year-old Willis Hughes.
    Larson says they haven’t had any luck, but he plans to come back.

    Is the woman he was last seen with sleuthable? She has a warrant out for her arrest for FTA...may be unrelated to the disappearance, but seems she's missing too (in a way) and was last scene with him...
