Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Daniel was last seen at home on Nightingale Place on October 5, 1982 around 7:30 in the evening. He left his home upset after a dispute with his parents.
Neighbors found Daniel's bike on the Alameda Creek Regional Trail, not far from his house on Nightingale Place, a few hours later. But he hasn't been seen or heard from since. When Daniel had stressful situations at home before, he would go to his best friend's house to cool off. But that didn't happen this time.
His family reported that someone, 30 days later, removed $50 and every piece of property that belonged to Daniel. Police say there were no signs that the home had been burglarized.
His case was reopened in 2015. In late December 2015, Fremont investigators got a search warrant to bring in cadaver dogs to search the property. Then, on December 30, they got another warrant to dig up the backyard. However, the search came up empty. Foul play is possible.
