WILLIAMSON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A New Boston man reported missing earlier this week was found Wednesday night in Williamson, W.Va.

New Boston Police say James Lewis, 39, told Williamson Police officers that he hopped a coal train and rode it to the Williamson area.

A Williamson Police officer spotted Lewis and took him to Williamson Memorial Hospital for observation.

Earlier on Wednesday, New Boston Police received a call from a man who lives in Wheelersburg, Ohio, who said he saw Lewis walking along railroad tracks on Monday and toward the Greenup Dam Bridge.

That man did not know Lewis had been reported missing at the time, but later called New Boston Police after he found out.

NEW BOSTON, Ohio (WSAZ) -- New Boston Police are looking for a missing man, who family members say has mental health issues.

Police say James Lewis, 39, of New Boston, was last seen around 9:45 p.m. Sunday.

Lewis' mother says her son moved in with her last September after separating from his wife.

She says when she went to his room Monday morning, he was not there.

Family says Lewis left the home on foot, and took some clothing with him.

Police say family members have told them that Lewis has mental health issues, although he has not been medically diagnosed, and is not taking medication.

Investigators say Lewis may have gone back to Lewis County, Kentucky, where he previously lived. The Lewis County Sheriff's Office says they have checked in the area, but have not been able to track Lewis down.

Family members say they have not been in contact with him since Sunday evening.

If you have seen Lewis, call the New Boston Police Department at 740-456-4109.
