Police again ask for help finding missing man

Wichita police are still seeking the public's assistance in locating a man who has been missing since earlier this month.

Cornelius Hopson, 44, was last seen by his sister, Rhonda Hicks, the night of Dec. 7.

Police asked for the public's help finding Hopson on Tuesday, and while there have been some tips since, he has still not been found, Detective Robert Chisholm said.

Hopson, who lives in the 1300 block of North Volutsia, was last seen wearing gray sweatpants and a gray T-shirt. He was described as a black male, 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighing about 300 pounds. Hicks said Hopson takes medication for anxiety issues.

Hopson does not have a vehicle, and Hicks said she didn't know of any friends he would have gone to stay with.

Hopson does not have a history of disappearing or running away, his sister said. She described him as a private person who spent most of his time at home.

"For him to be gone this long and not have heard from him is really a concern to me," she said.

Police are asking anyone with information on the case to contact Detective Chisholm at 316-268-4181.
