Mothers Unite With Hope For Their Missing Children

September 29, 2013

Two mothers stood together Saturday night, united by the same hope that someone will help them find their missing children.

Susan Bell, mother of Danielle Bell, last saw her daughter 12 years ago. Cindy Daniels, mother of Tiffany Daniels, last saw her daughter a few weeks go. They, along with the parents of other missing children, gathered for a candlelight vigil along Pensacola Bay for Danielle Bell. They both hold out hope that there will be answers, that someone will come forward, in the cases of their missing children.

They were joined by family, friends and members of search groups like Escambia Search and Rescue and KlaasKids who have spent countless hours searching for their daughters.

Danielle Bell

Danielle Bell was last seen 12 years ago, on September 28, 2001, in the 500 block of Cedar Tree Lane between Highway 29 and Highway 95A in Cantonment. Then 14-years old, she was last seen with Alfredo Sanchez and Robert Basset.

Sanchez is currently  incarcerated for sexual assault against a minor. One of these crimes was against Bell.

Danielle Bell’s family believes that someone in the local community has information that will help solve her case.

Tiffany Daniels

Tiffany Daniels, 25, was last seen August 12 as she left work early. Here 1999 Toyota 4Runner was found August 20 in a parking lot of Park West, near Ft. Pickens, on Pensacola beach.

    Thank you for all of the support through your comments and encouraging words. We are still striving to get Danielle’s story out to the community. It has been a great challenge, but seeing such encouraging words makes it a little bit easier. Thank you. Bonnie (Danielles Sister)

    First baptist church is doing a prison ministry at that prison. Maybe thd head of it could talk to this person. It’s worth a shot! Anything to bring closer for this family. Praying for them!

    I met Danielle’s mom one night about a year ago and talked with her quite a bit, she has good leads but needs finality and peace of mind. After meeting her that night, my heart and prayers have been strong for her.

    Ok so this is enough someone knows something who ever did this could do or maybe have done the same to others if someone knows call crime stoppers tell. I have looked at doc web site and this makes me sick why would anyone let this go on this long one person is in prison now someone knows something. I wish I could spend 1 hour on this prison compound to tell these men that they have the opritunity to bring a mother closure no parent wants to have this happen to them but unless this is closed there will be a chance this could happen again…..there comes a time when a person just needs closure answers a body cause the not knowing is the worst of all.

    Sanchez is at century ci……so close to home. Maybe the inmates at the prison will here this story and if someone knows where a body is closure would be a good thing for this family Sanchez is in prison for disgusting crimes and deserves to be charged with any other ones he may be guilty of…with that being said a wise inmate at century told me once that prison walls talk that inmate has long passed but If he was there he could have got the answer.

    There is no pain like losing a child. I for one had a child die at an early age and the pain still haunts me.

    My heart goes out to all the parents who do not know where their children are.

    May God give all of you still searching for your loved ones strength to not give up looking!
