Alexandria Police combed the West End for the missing 44-year-old man with severe intellectual disabilities.
Police said that Edwards was last seen at around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday night in the 600 block of Shilling Street, which is near the Van Dorn Metro station. A police helicopter was also used to try and locate him.
“He’s not considered dangerous,” said APD senior communication officer Amanda Paga. “We don’t believe he took public transportation. He’s known to just kind of stay in the area.”
Paga said that this is the first time that Edwards has been able to get away unsupervised for an entire evening.
Edwards walks with a limp and is five-feet-two-inches tall and 120 pounds.
Police said he frequents the area of S. Van Dorn Street and Edsall Road, which is near the McDonald’s at 505 S. Van Dorn Street. Police tweeted a photo of Edwards standing in line at the McDonald’s at 11 a.m.
