As previously reported by the Inquisitr, although not much information regarding the investigation into Danielle’s disappearance has been released by police, DNA tests are reportedly being run on a mattress obtained from the home of a security guard who once worked in the same building as the missing woman, according to what an investigator told Fox News, speaking on the condition of anonymity. Fox News further learned that not only is the mattress taken from the security guard’s home being examined forensically, but three vehicles, including Danielle’s Jeep, are also being tested.

A law enforcement official told Fox News it is believed Danielle was kidnapped after leaving her job at MetLife where she worked with her mother. In addition, the official stated that although Danielle’s vehicle was found parked in front of her apartment following her disappearance, it is believed she did not drive it there.
On Thursday, December 22, the Farmington Hills Police Department and the Oakland County Crime Lab searched the security guard’s Berkley area home in connection with Danielle’s vanishing, according to WXYZ.
Danielle, 28, went missing sometime in the late afternoon of December 2 after leaving her job at MetLife at around 5 p.m. She had plans later in the evening to meet a lifelong female friend for dinner after first stopping at her apartment on the way home from work.
