Clune disappeared from the Long
Bridge Bar and Grill (Sandpoint,
Idaho) on November 6, 2004 just before 2AM, he
was wearing a blue
hooded sweatshirt and blue knit ski cap. Detectives,
family and friends have searched the surrounding areas and
don't believe Danny wandered off alone. Danny had just recently
moved to Sandpoint from New York City. He loved his new
small town life and was looking forward to settling down.
Friday November 5th Danny and some friends went to The Long
Bridge Grill outside of Sandpoint, ID. Just prior to the
bar closing, he and his friends began to regroup for the
car ride home. The last time Danny was seen, he was looking
for a friend and retrieving his blue hooded sweatshirt from
the bar at about 1:45am. Cell phone records show Danny tried
to call one of his close friends at 1:57am, this was the
last call made from his cell phone to date.
Friends waited about 15 minutes in the parking lot, but
didn't see him. Thinking he may have decided to walk home,
they began driving toward Sandpoint, stopping to see if
he was among the pedestrians on the Long Bridge walkway,
but he was nowhere to be found.
December 17, 2004 a duck hunter discovered a badly decomposed
body in an Idaho river. On
December 22, 2004 dental records were used to positively
identify the body as Danny.
case is still open and we will continue to search for answers.
