  • According to a close friend of Joshua’s, he was at his residence in Daly City during the week last week. The Daly City Police apparently responded to a burglary call reported by Joshua. I think someone needs to confirm the date this burglary report was made to rule out whether or not Joshua was even at Yosemite. If he did file a report with the Daly City police, he either left Yosemite early or he just never went. At any rate, there’s obviously a possibility that he didn’t go missing at Yosemite.
