WEST LEECHBURG, Pa. - UPDATE: Gabriel David was found safe late Wednesday, according to Channel 11’s news exchange partners at TribLIVE.
ORIGINAL STORY: Gabriel David was last seen on Friday. Now, his mother is desperate for answers.
“He told his roommate he was going to meet a friend in Carnegie,” said Tiffany Feroce-Gutonski. “But the friend said they never had plans to meet. It’s very confusing.”

“I've always been close with Gabriel. He's always been a wonderful kid. And very responsible,” she said. “He would never not go to work. This is so uncharacteristic of him, just disappearing.”
Calls to David’s phone go straight to voicemail. He drives a silver Volkswagen Jetta, license plate JYK 9571.
“I know my son would not leave and disappear without telling me or coming to me,” said Feroce-Gutonski. “I know my child. There was not drug use. There was nothing like that. It's like he's just gone.”
West Leechburg police are investigating the disappearance. Channel 11 is working to reach them for more information.
