Daniel's nicknames are Dan and Danny. He may wear contact lenses or eyeglasses.
Daniel was last seen leaving school in Running Springs, California at 10:45 am on February 8, 2004. He said he was going to buy a pack of cigarettes and never returned. He took no belongings or identification with him when he left.
Daniel is originally from New Jersey. He was sent to the Cedu School, a therapeutic boarding school for troubled youths, just 10 days before he disappeared. His parents decided to send him there after he broke up with his girlfriend and stopped going to his public school in December 2003. Daniel told his parents he was unhappy at the Cedu School and afraid of the other students, and that he planned to run away.
Police believe Daniel left of his own accord and may still be in the local area. Daniel is not the only child to disappear from a Cedu School. John Inman disappeared in 1993, and Blake Pursley in 1994. None of the boys have been found.
