The Damn Quails Tour Manager Found ‘Safe and Without Injury’
Colin Deyalsingh, the Damn Quails' missing tour manager, has been found "safe and without injury," according to the band.
On Tuesday night (March 22), around 8PM ET, the band shared on Facebook that Deyalsingh's sister had received a voicemail from someone claiming to be Deyalsingh and stating that he was in Colorado Springs, Colo.; however, the call came from a number that was not Deyalsingh's. About an hour and a half later, around 9:30PM ET, the Damn Quails posted that the message was indeed from their missing tour manager, and that he had been located in Colorado Springs.
"He has spoken to members of the team, and we have a person with him at this point. He is currently safe and without injury," the group writes. "... We do not know any of the circumstances that led Colin to Colorado, and we do not know anything further at this time. This is not our story to tell, and any further information about this will have to come from Colin and his family ... We are happy our friend has been found."
Deyalsingh had been missing since late Saturday night (March 19), after disappearing from the Firehouse Saloon in Houston, Texas, prior to the Damn Quails' show there. He had left all of his personal belongings behind, and no one had heard from him since about 11PM that night. Houston is about 960 miles from Colorado Springs -- about 14 hours in a car, or about a 2.5-hour flight.
The Damn Quails released their first album, Down the Hatch, in 2011. They struggled through legal issues with their record label and management company, which were settled after two years, following the disc’s release and most recently released Out of the Birdcage in September. The group raised more than $50,000 on Kickstarter to help fund the project.
