UPDATE: Colin Deyalsingh has been found. See updates below.
On Monday (3-21), the Norman, OK-based country rock band The Damn Quails took to Facebook to solicit the public for help finding their tour manager who went missing during their show in Houston Saturday night (3-19). At roughly 11:00 p.m., 39-year-old Colin Deyalsingh disappeared with no trace from the Firehouse Saloon in Houston, located at 5930 Southwest Fwy (Interstate 69) 77057, which is in the western portion of the city.
Colin Deyalsingh disappeared with with no sign of where he went, or what happened. All of his personal belongings were left behind. The band has checked the hospitals and jails to no avail, and the band was still in Houston Tuesday (3-22), actively looking for Colin. The 39-year-old has a long, dark beard and black hair with slight gray accents. He was wearing a brown hoodie and jeans, and a Cody Jinks hat with a mesh back. He is roughly 6 foot tall and weighs 215 pounds. He has a full sleeve of tattoos on his right arm, and other tattoos on his left arm.
Missing persons reports have been filed in both Houston, TX, and in Norman, OK where Colin is from. He is the father of two children, and both the Damn Quails, and his family and friends are very worried.
If you have any information, please contact the Houston Police Department, or CTK Entertainment at 512-312-9350.
As more information is made available, Saving Country Music will update this story.

UPDATE (3/22 3:37 p.m. CDT): Despite speculation that Colin Deyalsingh has been found, or that he has made contact with individuals, none of this information can be confirmed at this time. Sharing this information could further hamper search efforts, or the ability for The Damn Quails management and Colin Deyalsingh’s family to file a formal missing person’s report. Though the effort has been made to file a missing person’s report, certain benchmarks must be met before the report can be officially filed. The last time Colin’s cell phone pinged a tower was Saturday night near the Firehouse Saloon where he went missing. Individuals are strongly encouraged not to speculate or spread information until it is confirmed by The Damn Quails management.
UPDATE (3/22 7:55 p.m. CDT): The Damn Quails have released an updated statement:
In response to everyone’s questions about the rumor going around that Colin has been found, we wanted to update you on what we know at this point. We know that Colin’s sister received a voicemail, from a number not belonging to Colin, stating it was him and he was in Colorado Springs, CO. Unfortunately, this is all of the information we have at this point. Thank you for everything everyone has done to help us find him. There are a lot of unanswered questions so we will try to keep you updated as we confirm that Colin is safe.
Colin’s sister Caila Corin Deyalsingh posted Tuesday afternoon on Facebook:
While I was in the shower, Colin Deyalsingh called and left a message on my phone saying he is alive and in Colorado, but he said he does not have a phone or anything with him! Have not been able to get back in touch with him. He must have borrowed a stranger’s phone. Hoping to hear from him again soon! Thank you to everyone that prayed for my brother and shared our posts, I haven’t laid eye on him yet and haven’t had a conversation with him, but we are currently working on that. Thank you again!
At this point, neither the family, nor The Damn Quails’ management have been able to confirm that Colin is indeed safe or in Colorado. None if this explains how he got there, and why he doesn’t have his phone, or didn’t take any of his possessions with him, and didn’t tell anyone when he left Houston. The public should still remain vigilant, and report any information they may have on Colin’s whereabouts until he can be confirmed safe and accounted for.
UPDATE (3-22 8:42 p.m. CDT): Colin Deyalsingh has been found.
Update from the band.
It has been confirmed that Colin Deyalsingh has been located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. 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. We wish to thank every single one of you who helped us during this difficult time. The outpouring of support and love was overwhelming. We would like to thank all of the law enforcement agencies and members of the press who did everything in their power to get the word out to help us find our friend. 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. Thank you all again for lifting us up in our time of trouble. We will never forget it. We are happy our friend has been found. –The Damn Quails
