Loveland truck driver disappears

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        LOVELAND — A 50-year-old resident who is the father of four has been classified as a “critical missing person” by the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department.

        Daniel Schmitt of the 1200 block of Rich Road was last seen at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday leaving his home. Mr. Schmitt is 5-foot-9, 185 pounds, with hazel eyes and brown hair.

        He was driving a 1980 two-tone, copper-and-brown Chevrolet pickup with Ohio plate AF74FR. On the front windshield of his truck is a “Mudder Trucker” sticker. On the back window are two green frog-head stickers.

        His wife, Debbie, said her husband has suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder since he was in a serious traffic accident in 1997.

        Mr. Schmitt, who is a truck driver, told his wife he was leaving to drive a tractor-trailer to Columbus.

        His company, however, said he wasn't scheduled for the run, his wife said.

        Anyone with information should call the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department at (513) 595-7485.
