Chicago police and worried family members are looking for two men who went missing after leaving a River North nightclub this weekend.

Detectives issued a pair of missing person bulletins on Monday evening as they try to determine where 22-year-old Joseph Ramos and 21-year-old Antonio Lemon have gone.

Around 2:49 a.m. on Sunday, the men left LITE nightclub, 215 West Ontario, according to police and social media posts. A few minutes later, city license plate reading technology detected Lemon’s car near LaSalle and Washington, but investigators do not know who was in the vehicle.

The car, a dark blue or black 2005 Dodge Avenger bears license plate AQ54397, police said.

Lemon, commonly called “Tony,” was last seen wearing a red sweater with a black vest, according to the CPD bulletin. He’s 6’4” tall, 170 pounds, and has black hair with brown eyes.

Ramos, who goes by “Joey,” was last seen wearing a light blue Patagonia hooded pullover, police said. He stands 5’7” tall, weighs 175 pounds, has brown eyes, brown hair, and has a tattoo on his left thigh that says “EDDIE.”

Anyone with information about the men can contact Chicago police at 312-744-8266.
