A Parkland man has been missing for nearly a month, and investigators fear something has happened to him.

Daniel O’Leary, 32, left home after arguing with his wife Feb. 11 and hasn’t been heard from since, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.

He hasn’t shown up at work or called in, and his wife and 12-year-old daughter haven’t seen him, officials said. There’s been no activity on his cellphone or bank account.

Two days after O’Leary disappeared, his 2014 Ford Focus was found on the side of the road in the 10500 block of Fifth Avenue East in Spanaway.

The car was unlocked, and the keys were on the ground nearby. The car did not appear to have any mechanical issues.

Family members said O’Leary has never disappeared before, and it’s unusual for him to be out of contact. They and friends organized search parties in the area where his car was found, but found no sign of him.

O’Leary is 5 feet 8 and 155 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes. He has several tattoos, including the name Britney on his right hand and Alecia on his left forearm.

His family said he was last seen wearing burgundy pants, a black shirt with white writing, a reflector jacket and gray shoes.

Anyone with information on O’Leary’s whereabouts is asked to call the Tacoma-Pierce County Crimestoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477).
