BEAUMONT, Texas (KTRK) -- The search for a missing Beaumont man who authorities believe may be in danger has been discontinued.

According to a tweet posted by Texas Alerts, an official account of the Texas Department of Public Safety, authorities have discontinued the search for 24-year-old Damaarkus Baines.

Baines was last seen Monday, Nov. 2. A CLEAR Alert was issued to help find him.

Investigators said Baines is 5-feet 8-inches tall and weighs 140 pounds. He has brown hair, brown eyes and has a tattoo on his right outer forearm that says "Blessed."

Authorities believe Baines' disappearance poses a credible threat to his own health and safety. Anyone with any information about Baines should call the Beaumont Police Department at 409-832-1234.
