"This is any family's scariest nightmare": Paso Robles man missing for nearly 7 weeks

Posted at 5:25 PM, May 01, 2020

It's been nearly 7 weeks since a Paso Robles man went missing without a trace.

Trevon Perry was last seen in the 1600 block of Poppy Lane in Paso Robles.

The Paso Robles Police Department says they've been following up on a number of leads since the 27-year-old was reported missing.

"He's got the biggest heart that I know," said Trevon's Sister, Caryssa Esquivel. "He would give anybody his last dollar if they needed it more than he did."

Missing person signs are posted on telephone poles and store windows in Paso Robles and neighboring cities.

Trevon, also known as Tre, was reported missing on March 16. He was last seen in the early morning hours of March 15.

His mom and sister say this is the longest they've ever gone without talking to him.

"He hangs out at the house. His friends hang out at the house and he won't go a day without showering," explained his sister. "He won't go a day without calling mom," added his Mom, Shannon Scott.

His family looks for him any chance they get. They've searched the Salinas Riverbed to empty fields.

"Anytime we get in the car. If you're a mom and you don't know where your kid is, that's what you're doing," Scott explained.

"Trevon is a goofball. He's very funny. He's a big family man. He loves kids. Kids love him. He loves his mom and his sisters and brothers," Esquivel said.

He's also a dad to a 4-year-old son named DeAngelo who lives in East Texas with his mom.

The family says last time they talked to Trevon everything was fine.

Paso Robles PD along with investigators from the District Attorney's Office are following up on tips.

"We have gone up in a helicopter and searched the area with the assistance of the California Highway Patrol," said Commander Stephen Lampe of Paso Robles Police Department.

Police say Trevon's phone is off and it appears the battery has died.

When asked if the case is suspicious...

"Obviously, it's very concerning when someone has been missing for as long as Trevon has," Commander Lampe said. "The case has not been upgraded in status. It is currently a missing persons case."

"We just want our son, brother back," Scott said.

"This is any family's scariest nightmare," Esquivel continued.

"I don't wake up from it. I keep hoping I will," Scott added.

The family is offering a $1,000 reward.
