Police suspect foul play in the September 2011 disappearance of Lenwood “Lenny” Harris from Alexandria, Virginia. Investigators released a picture of a tattooed man who used Harris’s bank card at an ATM machine hours after he disappeared. Police found Harris’s cellphone discarded on the Woodrow Wilson Bridge.
“We believe he is in danger,” said Ashley Hildebrandt, an Alexandria police spokeswoman.
Friends and relatives have conducted search parties, passed out fliers, and a candlelight vigil drew hundreds. A reward fund has reached nearly $5,000.
His absence is acutely felt in the community where he was raised. Harris, a popular civic activist and businessman, is a longtime fixture at Alexandria community meetings. He often speaks for the underprivileged and is a regular at city recreation centers, where he leads children in outdoor activities and helps them find tutors.
“People don’t just vanish into thin air,” said Alicia Hughes, an Alexandria City Council member and a friend of Harris’s. “No one has seen him or heard from him. It’s quite bizarre.”
Police said Harris, who stands 6-foot-1, weighs 210 pounds and has dark hair and brown eyes, was wearing a gray sweat top and gray sweat pants when he was last seen.
