Daniel is a man of many interests and creative talents. With a background as a dance artist, he has also played violin since he was 8 years old. When he’s not singing or playing an instrument, Daniel is most likely writing about a new project, podcast or event.


At first, David tried to do his due diligence, dispatching his daughter to Daniel’s apartment and calling his son’s friends and cell phone. When he realized it had been six hours since Daniel had gone missing, though, “That’s when I got a little — a lot — worried,” he tells Rolling Stone. And when the cops didn’t seem to be moving as quickly as he would have liked, “That’s when I grabbed anything I could grab, threw it in my vehicle, and drove to Phoenix,” he says. Nearly six months later, David is still in Arizona — first camping out in hotel rooms, and now in a snug one bedroom apartment — burning through his retirement money and what were supposed to be his golden years scouring the desert for his son, and uncovering still more mysteries in the process. Katelyn, however, told police she had no relationship with Daniel — despite another friend of Daniel’s saying the missing man told him he “hooked up with one of the girls” he delivered to — and that she and a friend invited him to hang out because they were drunk and he seemed “harmless,” since he was short and only had one arm. Still, Katelyn told cops that Daniel began to get “creepy,” showing up at her house when she wasn’t there and texting her that he loved her. When she told him to stop bothering her, he texted her one last time, the day before he went missing: “The world can get better, but I’ll have to take all the time I can or we can, whatever to name it. I’ll either see you again or never see you again.”

David took matters int​​o his own hands after getting frustrated with the Buckeye Police. “I’m very much disappointed [with the police],” he says. “I just realized I was inadvertently working for the Buckeye Police Department. As a father, without the volunteers, I wouldn’t be able to do this at all. I’m a father out here, searching for my son and they did a total of four searches and they didn’t even come up with a construction cone.” Robinson says he previously relayed all his findings to the cops in real-time, but has stopped due to what he sees as the police’s lack of initiative. He points to the Gabby Petitio case as a prime example of police properly using their resources — namely calling in the FBI — and how her remains were discovered not long after she was reported missing. “I do not blame the Petito family. They have nothing to do with this. They lost a daughter. They have a young adult, same age group around my son, and they feel the same way,” he stresses. “All I’m saying is [the cops had the resources] there quickly. The Buckeye… it’s like they’re reluctant to use the resources.” (Source: www.rollingstone.com)
