Where was Daniel?

fieryfurnaceDaniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego begin the book of “Daniel” all together.  Daniel is promoted in Chapter 2 because he interprets the dream of Nebuchadnezzar.  However, they all stay in Babylon.  In fact, Daniel has the other 3 promoted as well.

In chapter 3, we see the famous story of the fiery furnace.  At this point, Daniel disappears for a critical point in the story.  The king makes everyone in the kingdom bow to the statue and worship it.  If anyone chooses not to bow, they will be thrown into the fiery furnace.  Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego choose not to bow because of their devotion and faith in the one true God, Jehovah.  As a result, they are thrown into the fire.  However, we never hear about Daniel at this point.

Did he bow?
Was he traveling to another part of the country?  (out of the office and scenario)
If he was around, why didn’t he speak up to save his friends?
Why did he not get in trouble if he didn’t bow?
