On April 6, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department sent out a notice asking for the public’s help locating a missing person, Daniel Joseph Frank Foster, 28, of Fallbrook. According to sheriff’s officials, Foster disappeared “under suspicious circumstances and may have met with foul play”.
At that time, it was thought that Foster had last been seen in the community of Anza in February. He was reported missing by family members March 3, said Riverside Sheriff’s Lieutenant Paul Bennett, who described Foster as a white male, 6-foot-3, 180 pounds, with blond hair and blue eyes.
Since Foster’s disappearance was broadcasted last week, Fallbrook resident Stephanie Sinclair has reported to the Fallbrook Sheriff’s Department that she saw Foster early in March walking in the CVS parking lot on South Mission Road in Fallbrook.
Sinclair also said that her daughter saw Foster playing a guitar, also in early March. They recently talked to a woman at Heyneman Park who saw Foster playing his guitar there, with a pot sitting in front of him for donations sometime in March.
According to family members, they had not seen or heard from Foster since early February. He has not been responding to family or friends since his disappearance and his cell phone goes directly to a recording that says he is not available.
The missing man’s mother, Nancy Foster, described her son as, “Kind, generous and compassionate.”
“Danny is a good man who may have gotten involved with bad people,” Foster’s mother explained. “He was trying to find some peace, but he got lost along the way. I’m desperate for answers. I just want to know my son is alive. Any information, no matter how minor, would help.”
She added that her son has a little brown dog named Apollo.
Investigators from the San Diego Sheriff’s Department have been searching for Foster since he was reported missing.
Anyone who has information or leads regarding Foster’s whereabouts is encouraged to immediately contact the San Diego County Sheriff’s office at (760) 806-5352. Callers can refer to incident file number 17111315 and remain anonymous.
