This story is shocking. So called friends of Tom Daniels reports him missing after 9 days. They last saw him leaving Cici’s pizza feeling agitated. He was saying that someone was coming after him. He’s now been missing for 12 days without any word. He hasn’t touched his facebook account, called his girlfriend or his mom and he hasn’t used any of his credit cards.
His mom lives in California and says last time she spoke to her son he was seeing a psychiatrist. She hopes him missing has something to do with his mental health and not that someone hurt him. Family didn’t find out about him missing until his aunt who lives in Gainesville got a knock on her door from police wanting to know if her nephew was there. His aunt helped raise him, which is why police thought he might be at her house.
Daniels weighs 230 pounds and has brown hair and eyes. He was last seen wearing a gray tank top and beige cargo pants. FIU is also trying to help in the investigation and are posting pictures all around and will post an article in their newspaper.
Okay these aren’t his friends, because if I couldn’t get a hold of my friend and didn’t see him in school for more then 2 days I would have gone knocking on his dorm room door. If I still couldn’t find him and no one has seen him, I would have reported him missing. Now the mother was complaining that the friends should have reported him sooner, but she hadn’t talked to him for more then 9 days either and didn’t find that strange? I am assuming they didn’t talk very often then. My mother would have been on a plane over here if I didn’t answer the phone on the second day.
Also where does the girlfriend come in, why didn’t she call the police sooner? If my boyfriend didn’t return my phone call after 2 days, I would try going to his place, or calling someone that might know where he was. If I couldn’t find something out I would then call the POLICE! (Maybe they were having problems and so she thought he was just ignoring her phone calls) this could be a possibility I don’t know, but why else wouldn’t she be worried?
This just sounds strange to me all around. Missing for 9 days before anyone reports it? Not a friend, not a family member, not his girlfriend were worried sooner then 9 days? The fact that he hasn’t used any of his accounts is also scary, he isn’t just hiding out in a hotel depressed about something. If he was seeing a psychiatrist was he depressed? There seems to be so many missing links to this puzzle. I hope that someone has some kind of information and I hope that Tom Daniels is somewhere safe out there. If he is, he needs to report in, I don’t care how old you are. People are worried. I know I would be if I knew him…
Anyone with information about Daniels should call FIU Police Sgt. R. Diaz at 305-348-2626 or 305-348-2633.
