Police say Willis was last seen near the intersection of Water and Wisconsin in downtown Milwaukee. He left work at the Kohn Law Firm downtown, and told a co-worker he was headed to the ATM, to visit his girlfriend, and then to take his elderly mother out for dinner.

He hasn't been seen since Friday, June 14th.

Willis' co-workers passed out flyers on Tuesday near McKinley Marina -- the area where Willis was last seen.

Tuesday was Willis' 62nd birthday.

FOX6 News has learned Willis may have been spotted recently in the Washington Heights neighborhood.

Alissa Mathison says she was doing her regular Monday morning exercise near Hi Mount Boulevard and Vine Street.

"It's strange to see someone around here lost. I walked past him. I said 'good morning' and he was startled and he mumbled something I couldn't understand," Mathison said.

Mathison said she was in her exercising zone, and continued to walk, but turned back to see the man she believes was Willis asking for directions from a woman who was walking her dog.

The next day, Mathison saw the news of a missing Milwaukee man, and remembered the man she ran into.

"He had a blue backpack. He was wearing tan pants. He's about my height. I'm about 5'10" -- he's 5'9". He didn't have his glasses on," Mathison said.

Milwaukee police say Willis' glasses and wallet have been recovered.

Meanwhile, Mathison says while she didn't get a good look at the face of the man she saw, she is positive it is Willis.

"Whoever talked to him, had a conversation with him might know where he's headed and what's he's trying to find," Mathison said.

Police describe Willis as a black man, 5'9" tall, weighing 210 pounds with brown eyes and black/gray hair.

Those who know Willis are concerned because they say he is an insulin-dependent diabetic, and had to have daily injections.

Willis' vehicle, a burgundy Hyundai Santa Fe has not been located.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Milwaukee Police Department at 414-935-7401.
