BUCKEYE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - Authorities say a Jeep belonging to a missing geologist has been discovered. Police say 24-year-old Daniel Robinson was last seen June 23 after working at a job site in the Buckeye area west of Sun Valley Parkway, just north of Cactus Road. Buckeye police say a rancher found Robinson's Jeep on his property, about four miles southwest of the job site.
The Jeep was reportedly found in a ravine and appeared to have rolled and landed on its side. Police say the airbags in the Jeep were deployed, and investigators determined that Robinson was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. Robinson's cell phone, wallet, some of his clothes, and keys were found at the crash site, police say. Detectives immediately started searching the Jeep and the surrounding area. The Department of Public Safety's Ranger helicopter, the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, and their search and rescue dogs have all joined the search.
So far, there has been no sign of Robinson. But police say based on the personal effects found in his vehicle, no foul play is suspected. Robinson didn't tell anyone where he was going or why he was leaving, and he has not been seen or heard from since. His family has put up a website with information about the search. If you have any information on Robinson's whereabouts, please call 623-349-6400.
