Daniel Jason Higgins, AKA Jason Higgins, is a U.S. Air Force Veteran who was last heard from on February 13, 2016 and was possibly in or near Davenport, Florida. Daniel Higgins left Clewiston, Florida on February 2, 2016 and went to Jacksonville, Florida for an interview at an Air Base. He left Jacksonville, Florida on February 12, 2016 to head back to Clewiston, Florida, but called his mother on February 13, 2016 to let her know the job at the Air Base did not start for a month and he was going to stay with a friend named Mike who was going to give him a job until the job at the Air Base started. The last time Jason Higgins used his credit card or sunpass (Florida’s Pre-paid Toll Program) was on February 16, 2016 and he has not been seen or heard from since.
Around the same time as his family last heard from him, his cell phone, bank account, and both his facebook and twitter accounts, were shut down. The Hendry County Sheriff’s Office contacted his friend Mike who told them that Jason came by his office and borrowed $100.00 he and told Mike that he was going to his mom’s in Clewiston. Mike wasn’t sure of the date the money was borrowed in February. Since his bank account was closed, his pension check for March was returned to the Defense Finance and Accounting Services (DFAS).
His vehicle, a red 2014 Mercedes C250 with Florida license plate Y44CBM was located in a Walmart parking lot in Santa Rosa county Florida on Thursday, March 24th 2016, at 3:00 a.m.. A Detective who reviewed the Walmart security camera footage mentioned that the vehicle arrived on February 19, 2016 and Jason Higgins was seen leaving his car and going into the Walmart, using the restroom and buying a few things. It appears that for at least a short time, Jason Higgins was living in his car. A few weeks ago (Date not made available) a white car picked up Jason Higgins and he has not been back to his vehicle since. All of his personal belongings are still in the vehicle.
