13 December 2011: Dan, where are you? I wrote this article for Mia Freedman, and it went viral and resulted in our first confirmed sighting.

Daniel O'Keeffe is missing.

30 July 2012: Last night I read about Daniel O'Keeffe, and in a heartbeat the shutters shot up.  You see Daniel went missing last July, he had been suffering depression and seemed to have the world at his feet.  Apart from one unconfirmed sighting, he has not been seen since.  Yet.

25 July 2012: Hi all, this isn’t something we would usually write about but I would like you all to take a second to think about this..

I am friends with a family member this has actually happened to and feel its in my duty to help where I can, and spread his face as far as I can.

We’ve been dreading tomorrow all month. Birthdays are the worst.

Last year I registered my whole family in Run Melbourne 2011. I thought it would be a positive way to acknowledge my brother Daniel's courageous battle with depression, by bringing the family together and thanking Lifeline for the support they had been giving him.  I told Dan a few days before the event how excited I was to be running with him on Sunday, but on Friday 15 July 2011, he went missing. Dan walked away from our family home, with no money, no ID, and we haven't heard from him…
