Family Seeking Missing Son

I was asked by a reader to post this Missing Person’s Poster  and am happy to do so. This is every parent’s nightmare — a child off medication disappears.  For updates, you can visit the family’s Facebook page

Daniel Goldstein Daniel Goldstein
Name: Danny Goldstein
Age: 34 (date of birth: 7 August 1976)

Last seen Sunday night, July 25, 2010 in Rutland, Vermont.

Description: white male, height 5’10”, weight 170 lbs, glasses, short brown/grey hair, brown eyes, possibly depressed—history of (nonviolent) mental illness. Plays guitar, smokes, loves bluegrass music. Likely he is in the woods– please alert all hikers in the area– however, he could be anywhere. Has been off his medication and could be very disoriented.

Any information, please call the Rutland Police Department at 802-773-1816.

REWARD now offered for information leading to finding Danny.


Danny spoke with his parents Sunday night [July 25, 2010] and then visited with a neighbor until 11 pm. He didn’t show up for work Monday morning. He seems to have left on foot (another neighbor saw Danny leaving home on foot Monday morning around 10 am), leaving behind his cell phone, keys, wallet, cigarettes, and car. He seemed quite depressed. He was looking forward to his family’s upcoming visit and playing with his little nephew. Danny is gentle, kind, funny, and loves playing the guitar and bluegrass music.

Danny could be in the wilderness of Vermont, or in other towns or cities. All hikers, especially near Rutland, please be on the lookout. However, he could be anywhere– please keep spreading the word.

He has probably been off medication for a while and may exhibit odd behavior but he is never violent or harmful, even when sick.
