An Evansville man is asking for your help to locate his stolen truck. 

Two weeks ago, it was reported that someone fired a round through the hood of the truck, nearly destroying the engine. Just when the owner thought he could get back on the road, trouble struck again.

Jordan Morgan woke up Tuesday morning, brewed a pot of coffee, and went to sit on his porch only to realize his Chevy Silverado was gone.

"It hurts. It hurts hard," Morgan said.

The 72-year-old Marine Corps veteran spends most of his days sitting here on his porch with his dog, Angie. He always has his eyes on his prized possession, an old white Silverado.

It's not a collector's item, but in it's 23 years on the road, it's seen its fair share of rough rides, including gun fire just two weeks ago. 

"I feel terrible that they shot it. Now here it is a couple weeks later, they steal it," Morgan said. "I mean what's these people thinking out there? I don't understand anybody that's going to go out there and steal something that belongs to someone else. Why can't they work? I worked all my life."

The truck is his only form of transportation and he only goes a few places. 

"Walmart and the gas station, the drug store to get my medicine and to lunch everyday. I'm going to miss my lunch now," Morgan shared.

Morgan gets his one meal a day from The Potter's Wheel and The Salvation Army, and walking simply isn't an option. 

 "I walk around, it feels like pins and needles in my feet. So I don't go very far, very fast," Morgan said.

Neighbors tell 14 News that Morgan would do anything for anyone. On Wednesday morning, he noticed a family with a broken down car. He walked over and offered them gas money. He says it's just in his nature. 

"I thought I knew the neighborhood, but then you never know what's going on. I mean what can I say? I don't know what to say," Morgan said.

Morgan says his truck is easy to spot. It's a white 1990 Chevy Silverado pick up-truck. The driver's side door doesn't open, so the driver would have to enter and exit through the passenger side. It has two bullet holes in the front.

If you think you see it, call police.
