    Now where is Daniel when you need him? - meaning

    Hello everybody!

    Mary
    Yes... yes of course you'll get it tonight.

    Good. Don't forget it counts towards 20 per cent of your final exam mark. See you later.

    Mary
    Really! Now where is Daniel when you need him?

    I think that "Now where is Daniel when you need him?" means "Now Daniel is nowhere to be found when you (really) need him" or "Now Daniel is nowhere to be found when he is (really) needed".

    Do you confirm or deny?

    Thank you.

    You're right.
    I am not a teacher.
