Missing Person Update

Richmond Police are investigating a possible connection between a body found today in Charles City County and a city woman who went missing earlier this week, 27 year old Tameka Claiborne.

This morning, a passerby discovered the body of a woman off Route 5 in Charles City County near Herring’s Creek along the James River. The Medical Examiner will make a positive identification and determine the exact cause of death.

Richmond Police are also working closely with the Virginia State Police, the Charles City County Sheriff’s Office, the Hopewell Police Department and the Chesterfield Police Department on the investigation.

Earlier in the day, a person of interest in Claiborne’s disappearance,
Michael Solomon, 28, surrendered to Richmond Police. He and his
attorney arrived at police headquarters at approximately 9:30 a.m.

Solomon is being held in the Richmond City Jail on two prior charges
not directly related to the investigation.

Anyone who may spot Solomon's vehicle, a 2006 gold Chevy Malibu
with VA license XTU-2530 (similar to the one in the photo)
should call police.
