NEW ORLEANS – Police are looking for a man whose family says when they last saw him, he was riding in a strange truck.

Police said 47-year-old Melvin Hendricks’ sister said she last saw the man Friday at a gas station on the corner of Chef Mentuer Highway and Downman Road.

Hendricks is known to frequent the 9000 block of Chef Menteur Highway.
