PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Portsmouth police are searching for a missing man believed to be in danger.

Detectives say 31-year-old Omar E. Anderson was last seen at his home in the 400 block of Maryland Avenue around 1:00 a.m. Wednesday.

Investigators are concerned for Anderson’s well-being because he was in a very emotional state when he left home. Police say he also has a condition that requires daily medication, which he doesn’t have with him.

Anderson also has a tattoo on his chest that reads “AUBRIE” and a tattoo across his upper back that reads “INFANTRY.” He wears a red rubber wedding band with hearts on his left hand and a white baseball cap that has “WARRIOR GAMES” written on the front.

Anderson was last seen driving a black, 2015 Jeep Cherokee with VA license plate of VKM-5506.
