NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – The Newport News Police Department was searching for a man reported missing from his Newport News home.

Newport News Police conducted a welfare check at Richmond firefighter Daniel Lewis’ home after a battalion chief from the Richmond Fire Department called in on July 29.

When no one answered, the property manager let officers into the home, and no one was in the residence, fire officials said.

Lewis reportedly commutes to Richmond for work.

On August 5, CBS 6 reported that Newport News officials have called off the search for Lewis.
