UPDATE: The Pathammavong family say they have found their brother Daniel and he’s safe.

Earlier today, we reported that the family was looking for their brother, a Youngsville man who disappeared while working in Lake Charles.

Daniel Pathammavong, 34, had been missing since last week, his sister says. Later today, she said she’s found her brother and he is safe. She said social media posts and sharing of those posts helped her locate Daniel.

Pathammavong was working in Lake Charles, but is a resident of Youngsville, Donna Pathammavong said. His family hasn’t heard from him since Thursday, and that’s not usual, his sister says. Usually, he keeps in contact with at least one member of the family, but no one has heard from him, she said.

The family has been searching for him but haven’t found any leads. If you have any information, please call Sulphur Police at 337-527-4550.
