    The VI found the truck and it had been impounded. I can understand the impound part. A vehicle left on the side of the road unattended will be towed at some point.

    Someone saw a disoriented male and called highway patrol? Okay, I can understand that part, too.

    But as someone else noted above, where is the friend in all this? The friend that JD was helping to move?

    Because if the friend went to Wickenburg to get the tire fixed, that friend would need some way to let JD know what was going on.

    Did they have cell phones?

    ADMIN NOTE:

    Just to let you know that GonzoGirl has applied for verification and we are just waiting on some info back. There was a bit of a glitch in the email communication that slowed things down a smidge. Hopefully we will have them verified very shortly and they will be back sharing any info they can regarding James' disappearance.

    The fact the truck had no plates is a pretty sure fire reason it would have been impounded.

    Do we have a middle name for James?

    I doubt this link will work directly, but there are numerous people named James Daniels in AZ arrest records. I'm not seeing any recent 2021 cases but don't know how quickly their records get updated.

    Oh, this looks promising...this guy is listed as James Daniels II (which I imagine is a different way of saying James Daniels Jr.) , and he is listed as being born in June 1979 which would make him 42 years old now.

    This James Daniels II had some charges brought against him in Maricopa County Superior Court back in October 2019 and it looks like a warrant was issued for his arrest. I am wondering if perhaps the missing man in this case is the same person, and--if so--he fled from authorities because he was afraid they'd look him up and see he had an outstanding warrant.

    If @GonzoGirl5 returns as a VI, which I sincerely hope they will, I would love to know if the missing man's approximate date of birth (June 1979) lines up with the individual whose records I see on the Arizona courts site. If so, at least it would allow us to consider at least one non-nefarious explanation for his disappearance.

    Edited to add: I found additional details about this case. It looks like there's a bench warrant out for this person, and the charges were a "dangerous drug violation" and a "drug paraphernalia violation" (see second screenshot from the azcourtdocs.gov website).

    <modsnip: No images unless we know 100% it is the same person>

    The missing James
    Daniels was only traveling through Arizona. He lives in Wyoming. He also has a very different face from the man in the mugshot, imo

    Respectfully, anyone—regardless of their state of residence—could, hypothetically, be arrested in any other state. If we had some reason to think he had never, in his previous years, been in Arizona at all, though, I would agree that would rule out the guy with the bench warrant being the same as our missing person here.

    Also, I am not sure what mugshot you are referring to; I did not see one for the man with the bench warrant. If you found one, could you share here?

    If you google Arizona inmate search, enter the last name and first initial, and click on inactive the first name to pop up is James Daniels, who had similar infractions as the one you mentioned. There is a photo of him there.

    So -- we really don't know what was in the 2007 International refrigerated box when the trip started, we don't know where that truck was found, we really don't know when, we don't know who reported the empty truck & wandering man or when, we don't know where the truck is now, we don't know when the dog was last seen, we don't know when that truck lost the license plate, we don't know a whole lot.

    Lots of who, what, when, where, and why missing in this one.

    Impatiently awaiting info, as I'm sure our Gonzogirl is as well.

    It is a common name, and I do not believe that is the same guy as the one charged in 2017 who currently has a bench warrant out for his arrest in AZ. The charges are somewhat similar in nature but the guy I was referring to doesn’t have the AA charge like the man in the mugshot.

    James Daniels is a common name. I don't think that it is fair to the victim in this case to speculate about a possible criminal history without proof.

    So we're back to... we need to go to where the truck was found and towed. He's GOT to be near there somewhere.

    GonzoGirl5 has now been approved as a Verified Insider (VI) in James' case. We will leave it to them to explain their relationship to James.

    As a verified member, GonzoGirl5 does not have to provide links to the information they state as fact. Members may ask our VI questions but it is up to them whether they answer or not.

    Please be respectful to them at all times and do not argue with them or badger them for information.

    Hi. Sorry for the absence. I've been waiting to be verified. I should be good soon I would think. Anyway, I found the truck through the AZDOT after having exchanged a few emails etc. They gave me the location contact info and then added another number stating it had been involved in a collision. I called the number of the yard it had been towed to Kingman AZ. Which is odd because when I called the other number provided to me it was the Criminal investigation unit. So. I continued my path of numbers etc. This number led me to the State Trooper who arrived on scene at the 164 mile marker. 30 miles south of the then still abandoned trailer. On hwy 93.

    The dog was there when the trooper showed up at approx 4:50am on the 22nd. He attempted to get the dog into the car with him but the dog ran off into the desert. Likely the dog is no longer alive.

    Thank you so much for all your help. As well to the community here. I just really want to find my friend at this point dead or alive so that myself, all of his friends can have some peace of mind and closure. It has been one month now to the day and I am just sick to my stomach with the lack of action by law enforcement.

    he did not have experience driving a semi but I think it was an automatic. I have driven large dump trucks and water trucks like that. it was a 2007 international.
