Police seek missing Davis man

By From page A2 | April 18, 2013


The Davis Police Department is seeking the public’s help in finding a 25-year-old man who hasn’t been heard from since Saturday.
Daniel Brian Thompson was last seen by his roommate on Friday at their home in the 800 block of K Street, Lt. Paul Doroshov said. He texted a friend the following day, but failed to arrive at a scheduled meeting place.
Thompson also hasn’t shown up for work on the UC Davis campus, where he works as a scene technician at the Mondavi Center, according to UCD’s online directory.
“He’s considered at risk because it’s unusual for him to disappear,” Doroshov said Wednesday.
An avid mountain biker, Thompson may have been traveling on his bicycle, which also is missing from his home, Doroshov said.
His last known communication occurred at about 4 p.m. Saturday, when he exchanged texts with a friend in Davis who invited him over for dinner that evening, Doroshov said.
“They were going to meet, and (Thompson) just never showed up,” Doroshov said. While there are no indications of foul play, “we are concerned, because this isn’t his typical behavior.”
Thompson is described as a white male, about 5-foot-9 and 155 pounds, with wavy brown hair, blue eyes and a goatee. He also wears glasses.
Anyone with information about Thompson’s whereabouts is asked to call the Davis Police Department at 530-747-5400.
