I don't know why I didn't see it yesterday when I was looking for it, but this series of numbers are the 5 five digit numbers in the normal Fibonacci sequence written in columns.

Joe Ruby was correct to notice that the columns add up to each other, as thats what numbers in the Fib. Sequence do.

The fifth and last number in Danny's puzzle is:

5) 61785

* Edited for a typo in the final solution.
