Daniel lived with his family in Silver Lake, Ohio. He was last seen alive by his brother on Thursday March 28, 2002 at 2:30 PM. He did not tell his brother where he was going. Police have since learned the he made a stop in the Spicertown area of Akron to make a purchase. In April 2002, his white 1992 Plymouth Duster was later found undamaged and unlocked in a woody area near the top of a runaway truck ramp by the West Virginia/Maryland border. This car was Daniel's pride and joy and he always kept it washed and waxed. The car was meticulously placed in unforgiving terrain that is not accessible to vehicular or pedestrian traffic. The car's license plates had been removed. Daniel's University of Akron parking pass was the only person item found in the vehicle. He had never been to West Virginia, nor had he expressed a desire to go there. He had no credit card, bank account or extra cash for an extended trip. He was wearing black pants and his head was shaved at the time of his disappearance.
