According to a release, Lane’s family told VCU police that he was expected to be there, but did not return home that night. Police are considering Lane to be both missing and endangered.

“We really miss him,” Lane’s older brother, Louis Latif, told 8News. “We need him home.”

Latif said that family members were searching for Lane in the Highland Park area for several hours Wednesday night, where they believed he might have gone.

“How can you feel when you miss your loved ones? Sad, bad, and don’t know what’s going to happen, what the next call is going to be,” Latif said. “He’s real friendly, a kind guy, and anyone can talk to him.”

At this time, the VCU Police Department is the only agency involved. This is an active investigation.

Anyone who sees Lane is asked to call VCU Police at 804-828-1234. Those with information about the missing man’s most recent location can contact Det. Lee Olds at 804-382-2719 or by emailing oldskl@vcu.edu.
