The Boone County Sheriff's Office has asked for help from the community to find a man who is missing from the Bim area.

Daniel Joseph O'Neal, who is also known as "Joey," was driving a dark green Toyota Solara.  Deputies said that he has family in the Oceana area of Wyoming County and also in the Nitro area of Kanawha County.  He reportedly also has friends in the Beckley area of Raleigh County.

Deputies said that they are unsure if O'Neal is in any danger.  They did say that he has ties to a few "obscure religious group that have some questionable practices."

Family members said that he was last seen at the Starbucks in Beckley on Wednesday, Aug. 21.  Anyone with information on O'Neal's location is asked to call the Boone County Sheriff's Office at 304-369-7340.  The case is under investigation by Deputy C.N. Hess.
