Police are still searching for a Cleveland man who has been missing since 2004. 

Michael Hodge, who is now 51 years old, was last seen March 21, 2004 at his home in the 4500 block of West 172nd Street. 

“He just left,” John Hodge, Michael’s brother told in 2014, ten years after his sibling's disappearance. “He rode off on a bike and no one ever saw him again.”

Hodge had stopped by his father’s house to pick up a coat near the intersection of West 172nd Street and Puritas Avenue that day and then planned to go to a house party down the street. Whether he made it there is still a mystery.

“I think someone knows more than what they’re withholding from what happened that night,” John said.

Hodge is described as a white male who is 5-foot 10-inches tall and weighs 140 pounds. He has red hair and blue eyes. 

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call Cleveland police at 216-623-5118.
