The most recent picture taken

Daniel James O’Keeffe was born on 31 May 1987, is 180cm tall, has brown hair and hazel eyes. He disappeared from the family home in Highton, Victoria, on the morning of 15 July 2011. He was on foot, and took no personal belongings (including his wallet and thus identification). Three days later, we launched the Dan Come Home social media campaign, in an effort to encourage the public to help us in our search.

Dan is a kind, gentle, friendly guy who’s respected by his students, admired by his friends and adored by his family. Dan had been suffering with depression and anxiety prior to his disappearance, and we have concerns for his welfare. We feel he left as an act of love, not wanting to burden us with his illness.

On 30 November 2011, almost five months after he went missing, Dan walked into a medical centre in Queensland and asked for a glass of water. Two weeks later, having seen our interview on The Project, the receptionist realised she had spoken with Dan. He was going by his middle name (James) and was visibly very unwell. CCTV confirmed this and we spent 2 months searching SE Queensland.

Dan is still missing.

Please join our search and help us spread the awareness. We sincerely appreciate all efforts to help us know if Dan is okay.
