    Crishtian Hughes, 21, was last seen on Feb. 7, 2013 in the 900 block of Capitol Avenue in San Francisco.

    The search for a man missing in San Francisco since February 2013 has been re-energized this weekend after a possible sighting of the 21-year-old last week, a search organizer said Sunday morning.

    Crishtian Hughes, 21, was last seen on Feb. 7, 2013, in the 900 block of Capitol Avenue in San Francisco.

    On Thursday, a woman said she saw Hughes on Haight Street, according to Rachel Jackson, founder of PPP Recovery, an organization that is helping the Hughes family with search efforts.

    Other tips have since come in prompting search efforts in that area, she said.

    A search was held Saturday at 4 p.m. and another search effort was scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.

    The search group is meeting at the McDonald's restaurant at 730 Stanyan St. and volunteers are advised to bring a buddy while searching.

    If Hughes is spotted, search organizers advise keeping him in sight, but to not approach him. Rather tips should come in to 911 or (910) 627-3244.

    Jackson said Hughes is believed to be with a female with blonde hair and he has visible tattoos on his arms.

    He is believed to go by his street name Chris and have grown his curly hair long, Jackson said.

    His family, including his mother who lives in San Diego, is concerned about Hughes mental health, Jackson said.

    The Haight-Ashbury area is expected to be bustling Sunday for Easter and 4/20 celebrations, which Jackson said is not a hindrance but presents more opportunities to find Hughes.

    More information about the search is available online on a Facebook page dedicated to finding Hughes.
