UPDATE: The search for Daniel Thompson has been postponed to 9 a.m. Saturday, starting at the Putah Creek Cafe in Winters and extending along Highway 128 toward Lake Berryessa, friends say.

Friends of a missing Davis man, Daniel Brian Thompson, plan to conduct a search for him today along one of his favorite biking routes.

Anyone interested in joining the effort should gather in front of the Starbucks at University Mall, 825 Russell Blvd., at 1 p.m. The search will cover the Highway 128 bike route from Davis up toward Lake Berryessa.

Participants will be assigned an area to cover, Gardner said. Searchers are asked to bring bikes, vehicles that can accommodate bikes, water, charged cell phones, bug spray and sunscreen, and should dress to protect themselves from poison oak.

Fliers also are being prepared for distribution.

Thompson, 25, hasn’t been seen since April 12 or heard from since Saturday, according to friends and Davis police. He also hasn’t shown up for work this week at UC Davis’ Mondavi Center, where he works as a scene technician.

“I know something is really, really wrong, and I’m actually really panicked about it now,” Erin Gardner, Thompson’s landlord and roommate, who last saw him Friday afternoon at their K Street residence.

Thompson wasn’t feeling well at the time, Gardner recalled. Since then, he hasn’t responded to any of her phone calls, emails or texts, when typically “he always responds very quickly.”

Gardner said she fears Thompson may have fallen ill or had an accident while riding his bike and is injured somewhere along a rural stretch of the bike route.

Davis police said Thompson exchanged texts with a friend at about 4 p.m. Saturday and made plans to meet him for dinner, but never arrived. There were no new developments in the case as of Thursday evening, according to Lt. Paul Doroshov.

    Is Daniel a suspect in the double homicide in South Davis? Both he and the deceased female have ties to the Mondavi Center, he has not been seen since the general time at which the murders presumably took place, and according to the Facebook page established for him feared there was a warrant out for his arrest. The page claim he has emptied his bank accounts and purchased an Amtrak ticket out of town. While this may be 100% circumstantial, and I hope Mr. Thompson is OK, it seems a little fishy.

    He is not a suspect, according to the Davis Police Department.

    Thank you, this is a subject which is close to my heart. Is there any way I can contact you? My name's Marquita Jefferson and I'd get into this more deeply.
