Alexandria police are asking for help in locating a local activist they say has been missing since last week, and who they believe is in danger.
“We believe he is in danger,” said police spokeswoman Ashley Hildebrandt, who declined to elaborate. “That’s really all I can say.”
Friends and family held a vigil in hopes he will return home safely.
He is described as 6-foot-1, 210 pounds and has dark hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a gray sweat top and gray sweat pants.
Police also said someone used his credit card shortly after 1 a.m. on King St. on Sept. 22. A short description police provided said the man appeared to be a black male with a mustache and goatee, a muscular build and tattoos on his forearms.
