CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WAVY) — A Richmond firefighter who was reported missing last week was found dead.

The 30-year-old had been with the Richmond Fire Department for about a year.

The Richmond Fire Department released a statement Monday afternoon about the death of Firefighter Lewis.

It is with great sadness that the Richmond Department of Fire and Emergency Services acknowledges the death of one of its members, Firefighter Daniel Lewis. Last night the Richmond Fire Department received notification that Firefighter Daniel Lewis had been found deceased. The Fire Department expresses its condolences to the family of Daniel Lewis. Richmond Fire and Emergency Services ask that all honor the dignity and privacy of the family during this difficult time.
