The disappearance of Daniel Olson, 38 years old, from his house in Fargo, North Dakota, in October 2021, under unknown circumstances, left inhabitants of that city in a state of alarm. According to the reports, he was a veteran who was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. This condition is thought to have had a role in his disappearance. The film ‘Never Seen Again,’ produced by Paramount Pictures and distributed by Paramount Pictures, tells the story of Daniel’s mysterious disappearance and follows the police investigation that led to extensive searches in the hopes of finding him alive. If the specifics of this investigation have piqued your interest and you are wondering whether or not he has been located, we have the answer for you.
What Happened to Daniel Olson?
At the time of his disappearance, Daniel Olson was 38 years old and lived on his own in the city of Fargo in the state of North Dakota. People who knew him characterized him as a generous and kind-hearted man who loved to serve others and was renowned for his pleasant nature. People who knew him also described him as someone who was known for his friendly demeanor. Daniel, by the way, was a member of the North Dakota National Guard and spent a total of two years serving his country in Iraq. Because of this, he was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and was aware of how potentially destructive the symptoms of such a condition could be.
Daniel became an advocate for people who suffered with the same ailment even as he struggled with it himself and worked diligently to support those individuals. People became concerned about his disappearance after he failed to show up for work at North Dakota State University, where he worked as a research assistant in the Department of Soil Science. Reports indicate that his absence from work sparked the concern. Daniel did not report to work at North Dakota State University during the final week of the month of October 2021, which caused a great deal of concern on the part of his superiors.
The man, now 38 years old, had a reputation for working hard at his job, and it was not consistent with who he was for him to miss work without providing advance warning. Therefore, once his employer understood that Daniel was inaccessible by call or text, he dialed his cousin Lonnie Wertz’s number and briefed him on the peculiar circumstance. Lonnie, who also lived in Fargo, made a beeline for his cousin’s house as soon as he heard about the missing man, but he was unable to uncover any sign of him there. On October 28, 2021, he then went to the authorities and reported Daniel as missing after reaching this conclusion.
Is Daniel Olson Lost or Found? Is He Dead or Alive?
Due to the unfortunate fact that Daniel has not been found as of yet, his current state is not completely apparent. On the other hand, both the authorities and his family are keeping their fingers crossed for his safe return. After the police became engaged in the inquiry, they conducted interviews with a significant number of his friends and acquaintances to compile a list of potential locations where he could be found. While groups made up of law enforcement personnel and volunteers searched these locations, the authorities also made an effort to discover more about the person who went missing in order to establish whether or not they were involved in a criminal act. However, because it was common knowledge that Daniel was friendly, no obvious possibilities came to mind right away.
Eventually, on November 4, 2021, personnel from the local law enforcement agency discovered the abandoned automobile that Daniel had left at Cottonwood Park in South Bismarck. In passing, Lonnie remarked that the latter was born and raised in Bismarck, despite the fact that there was no reason for him to travel to that city. However, after conducting a search of the vehicle, the authorities discovered numerous of Daniel’s personal goods within it, which served as evidence that he had been present at some point. Following that, the police investigated the area surrounding Cottonwood Park, which included a pond located within the park as well as Lincoln Oakes Nursery and other areas.
In point of fact, sources claim that officials conducted a search for the missing individual using cadaver dogs, horses, a single patrol airplane, drones, and underwater sonar; but, they were unable to find any sign of the missing person. Sadly, sources claim that the search in Bismarck has since been called off, despite the fact that the police consider it to be an open investigation and ask members of the public to come forward with any information they might have. Sgt. Mark Gaddis addressed the public in December 2021, when it appeared that they had eliminated the possibility of foul play in connection with Daniel’s disappearance.
The investigator remarked, “Given the facts, I would assume that there is some cause for concern for his wellbeing.” Because his car was located, but he was nowhere to be found, and because his friends and family haven’t heard from him in a while, we are worried about him. Therefore, if anyone has any clues as to where he might be, they should contact us as soon as possible. On the other hand, Daniel’s family is hopeful that they will find him safe and sound at home, and they are assisting authorities in their search efforts.
