Daniel Joseph Pickett

St. John's residents enlisted in search for missing man
Police are asking homeowners in downtown St. John's to check their backyards and neighbourhood alleyways, as they search for a fisherman who has not been seen in more than a week.

Daniel Joseph Pickett, 25, was last seen in the George Street bar district on Oct. 24, 2006

A diver searched waters Monday near the small boat basin in St. John's harbour, where the vessel where Pickett had been working was tied up.

On Tuesday, the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary used police dogs and officers on horses in the search for Pickett.

Police and family members have said Pickett may have fallen into the harbour while returning to his vessel's berth after a night of drinking.

Pickett was supposed to have caught a bus to his home community of Clarenville a week ago.



I managed to locate A Jacket, Cap, and sneaker belonging to Danny Pickett,  in an alleyway off Water Street and turned the items over to the RNC.

I discontinued searching for reasons of a personal nature.

Shelly thanks for sharing this with us, and the fact that you did a search and came up with some items.  (They may or may not belong to him, but you did turn them over to the police. )  Please keep  us posted. This is not looking good.
