    Details of Disappearance
    Bell resided in Pensacola, Florida in 2001. She attended Tate High School and was a member of the cheerleading squad. She was popular at school and enjoys dancing and drawing. Bell was last seen at a party on September 30, 2001. She has never been heard from again. Authorities initially believed that Bell left her home of her own accord and classified her case as that of an Endangered Runaway. Her loved ones told investigators that she had friends who may have had a negative influence on her behavior at the time.

    Bell was last seen at a party Robert Louis Bassett Jr.'s residence on Cedar Tree Lane in Cantonment, Florida. The witnesses left the party that night, leaving Bell behind with Bassett. Bassett, who was 25 or 26 years old at the time, allegedly threatened another individual after Bell vanished. Investigators stated that the other male told officers that Bassett saw Bell on September 30 and provided Bassett's contact information to law enforcement. Bassett allegedly stalked the individual for several days afterwards. He was arrested sometime after Bell disappeared, but no charges have been filed against anyone in connection with her case. Authorities searched Bassett's residence after his arrest, but officials declined to publicly announce if any evidence was taken from the scene.

    Witnesses said that Bell visited a park on the corner of Escambia Avenue and Lakewood Avenue in Cantonment on September 30, 2001. The area where she was seen is near Bassett's house.

    Bell's disappearance remains classified as that of a runaway, but foul play is now suspected in her case. She may have traveled to Panama City, Florida; New Orleans, Louisiana; or the state of Alabama. There is also a possibility that Bell remained in the Pensacola area after her disappearance. Some agencies may list September 28, 2001 as the date of Bell's disappearance. Her case remains unsolved.

    KlaasKIDS Foundation's Search Center for Missing Children and the Escambia County Sheriff's Office will conduct another search today for Danielle Bell.

    Danielle -- who was 14 years old at the time of her disappearance -- was last seen in the early morning of Sept. 29, 2001, near Cedar Tree Lane in Cantonment after a party.

    Brad Dennis, director of search operations for KlaasKIDS, said the search will be conducted with the help of Escambia Fire-Rescue and the Escambia County Sheriff's Office.

    Trained search teams will use K-9s and information gleaned from the Escambia County cold case squad in the hunt.

    "We have received new leads from the Escambia County Sheriff's Office," Dennis said. "They have continued to gather information, and they requested us to come and search a couple of areas."

    Dennis said he would not disclose the location of the search because one of the areas is private property.

    Wow. She looks so much older in those pictures than 14.

    Hope LE puts pressure on the guy that saw her last. I have a feeling he knows more than he's telling.

    Investigators found nothing Thursday when they searched a septic tank in connection with the 2001 disappearance of Tate High student Danielle Arion Bell, 14.

    The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office Cold Case Unit served a search warrant at a home in the 500 block of Cedar Tree Lane in Cantonment — the same home where Bell was reportedly last seen at a party.

    As part of that search warrant, a septic tank behind the residence was pumped out, and dogs from Escambia County Search and Rescue were also used around the home.

    Robert Louis Bassett (see #1) is a particularly repulsive individual. He has a long criminal record covering burglary, theft, battery and several prison terms (see http://mugshots.com/US-Counties/Florida/Miami-Dade-County-FL/Robert-L-Bassett-Jr.3782248.html). If ever a persons criminal record made him a suspect, given the events around the disappearance, it is the record of Robert Bassett. I cannot imagine a 14 year old girl surviving association with this individual.

    Never heard of this case before today. Wow, I agree that it was mishandled. She was 14! I would be outraged if I was the mother in this situation. Doesn't sound good, likely murdered imo. Hopefully they can find her remains and the family can have closure
