Daniel A. Naylor was last seen around 7:30 p.m. when he left his home upset after a dispute with his father, who was the only one home at the time. He was reported missing 10 to 12 hours later. Searchers found his bike along Alameda Creek Trail near his home.
Initially, he was thought to have been a runaway, but in January 2016, it was released that his case was re-opened and detectives consider his disappearance suspicious, believing the dispute may have become physical.
Investigators obtained a search warrant for his childhood home and are currently digging up the backyard after a cadaver dog got a hit. Daniel's parents no longer live in the home, but his aunt does.
