MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee Police are searching for a 28-year-old man who's been missing since Saturday. 

Chloe Hecht says her brother, Tom Hecht, was out with about 15 of his friends on Saturday afternoon.

"There was a pub crawl Saturday afternoon called the Shamrock Shindig," said Chloe.

She told Newsradio 620 WTMJ's Michelle Richards that most of the bars Tom and his friends went to were on Water Street.

"The last that was seen of my brother was around 10:00 p.m. on Water Street.  One person believes he may have gotten into a cab, although no one can pinpoint for sure whether or not that happened," explained Chloe.

Chloe told Michelle her brother never picked up his car, and he didn't show up for work on Monday.

Tom Hecht's father, Robert, talked to TODAY'S TMJ4's Jermont Terry.  Robert Hecht said his son was supposed to meet him on Sunday morning, but never showed up. Robert Hecht believes Tom may have tried to walk home Saturday -- which meant the 28-year-old had to cross the Milwaukee River.  As a result, his family has also searched the riverbank.

Robert Hecht said the family is holding out hope that Tom will be found safe.

According to police, he was last seen wearing a green t-shirt with a St. Patrick's Day inscription on the front and green beads around his neck.
