Police say they believe they have found the remains of Trevon Perry, a Paso Robles man who was reported missing in March.

Perry was last seen leaving a friend's house in Paso Robles early in the morning on March 15.

Police say their investigation into Perry's disappearance led them to believe it was suspicious, so they enlisted the help of the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney's Office.

At a Friday afternoon press conference, Chief Ty Lewis said dozens of people have been interviewed and dozens of search warrants served as part of the investigation. On June 18, Chief Lewis said a home in Riverside was searched and human remains were discovered.

Lewis said investigators are awaiting DNA test results to make a final confirmation, but they feel confident the remains are Perry's.

He said the case has been ruled a homicide and while no arrests have yet been made, Lewis said police do have a suspect and he anticipates arrests in the near future.

He said no other information would be released at this time because detectives do not want to compromise the ongoing investigation.

Lewis said he wants Trevon's family to know the police share their pain and they are sad they could not bring him home alive.
