The younger brother of a local firefighter has gone missing in the Merrifield area, and as temperatures start to drop his family and friends are seeking public assistance to find him.
According to a Facebook post:
My younger brother (Harry) went missing this evening. He was last seen in Merrifield, Virginia around 1700 February 18th 2019, headed west on Route 50. The police are aware but we are increasingly concerned due to the low temperatures and his cell phone being turned off. If anyone has seen him or he has contacted you please reach out to me or someone in the family so that we can bring him home.
His name is Christopher Davis but he goes by “Harry.” 5’11” and 130lbs. He was wearing a white/cream bobble hat, grey/brown tweed pea coat, with a scarf, black trousers, and a pair of vans.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Fairfax County Police Department’s non-emergency number at 703-691-2131.
