Family still searching for son who was last seen leaving his work in Buckeye

A family is desperate to find their 24-year-old son who was last seen in Buckeye just over a week ago.

"Very hard on the family. We're up day and night making phone calls, flyers, doing everything we can to try and find my son," said Daniel Robinson's father, David Robinson.

Family continues with search

Robinson lives in South Carolina, and when he got word that his son was missing, he drove to Arizona to help with the search.

"Devastated, especially when not getting answers," said Robinson. "He was missing for hours by the time I got the notice. Didn't have any information on where he might have gone."

Robinson says that Daniel graduated from college back east three years ago, and he's been working in the Phoenix area ever since. Daniel lives in the Tempe area.

"Majored in Geology, so when he got out of college, he landed a job here. He loves it out here because of the rock formations," said Robinson. "Very outspoken guy. Very smart. He loves his family. Really close with his sisters and brothers."

Robinson says he plans on staying out here for as long as it takes.

"I need to find my son," said Robinson.

Buckeye Police provides update on case

On July 9, Buckeye Police officials released new information in the case.

In a statement, officials say Daniel arrived at his job site near Cactus Road and Sun Valley Parkway on June 6. He was last seen driving a 2017 Jeep Renegade, and was headed west, further into the desert area.

Daniel, according to investigators, did not tell anyone where he was going or why he was leaving. Location data was not available from Daniel's phone, due to it being off or out of range.

"Detectives obtained limited call detail records and it did not appear that Daniel made any calls or texts after leaving the site," read a portion of the statement.

Investigators say they learned from family, friends and co-workers that Daniel's behavior in the days prior to his disappearance was "not like himself at time," but there was no indication he wished to harm himself or leave the area.

On July 9, the Arizona Civil Air Patrol, along with Buckeye Police, did an extensive search by air and land. No signs of Daniel or his vehicle were found.

Anyone with information on Daniel's whereabouts should call Buckeye Police.
