Authorities have issued an arrest warrant for a missing Breckenridge lawyer, who's accused of taking hundreds of thousands of dollars from his clients.

Sixty-one-year-old Royal "Scoop" Daniel was last seen April 27th. He was reported missing after he failed to show up for appointments, prompting his friends to start a search.

But now the search has turned into a criminal investigation. Police say seven of Daniel's clients have reported that Daniel was holding money for them from real estate sales.

State judicial regulators have also moved to revoke Daniel's law license, fearing he may have stolen as much as one (m) million dollars
