Authorities hope for word of the missing man

Friends and relatives of Gary Paul Hooten, 24, are hoping that the missing man will make it home in time for the holidays. They are asking Memphians and any others with information on Hooten to assist them in their search. Hooten was last seen on Wednesday, December 13th. He had telephoned his fiancee, Natasha Tejwani, at the home they share in Midtown to tell her that he would be going to attend a class at ITT Technical Institute and then returning home. No one has heard from Hooten since . Police searches of the Memphis area have not discovered anything, not even Hooten's vehicle. Tejwani and Hooten are planning to be married in July and she says that at first she thought that maybe he was just "taking some time off," to work off a case of prenuptial jitters. But as days went by Tejwani began to worry, especially when Hooten's friends and relatives had not been contacted by him. Tejwani and members of Hooten's family ask that anyone who has seen the missing man or his vehicle contact the Memphis Police Department. Name: Gary Paul Hooten Age: 24 Race: White Height: 5'9" Weight: 160 - 170 pounds Hair: Brown, curly and thinning Eyes: Change from blue to gray; always wears prescription glasses with brown, oval frames Other: Has a tongue piercing, also has a medical condition which causes the veins in the thumb and index finger of his right hand to always be swollen. Last seen wearing black jeans and a blue denim short-sleeved button-down shirt. Hooten drives a 1997 metallic teal green, two-door, Chevy Cavalier with tinted windows and a rear spoiler. His car has a specialty Tennessee license plate with a purple cat and the license number is D4052.
