Details of Disappearance

Daniel was last seen in Birmingham, Alabama on February 7, 2018. He spent some time that day with his older sister, one of his four siblings, and was last seen when he parted ways with her in the 1100 block of 12th Court north. He wasn't carrying a cellular phone at the time of his disappearance. He has never been heard from again.

Daniel was a senior at Carver High School at the time of his disappearance, and planned to join the Air Force when he graduated in the spring; his father is a retired Air Force veteran. He was close to his family and it's uncharacteristic of him to leave without warning. His case remains unsolved.
