was working as an electrician in Las Vegas but unlike what the defective
says we do not believe that he committed suicide (No body has been
recovered and no suicide note) nor do we believe that he walked away to
assume a new life because of the things he had done such as purchases,
education and request for job transfer back to El Paso.
two scenarios remain one is foul play and the other "Federal
Vegas Metro Police Department is an uncaring entity unto itself and
answering only to itself, we came to this conclusion after only a few
days of our son's disappearance. It is easier for clarity sake to
highlight the time line before and after Trevor's' vanishing act.

Ray & Saleena
watched fight on TV asked Ray to pickup sunglasses at swap meet for him,
Later the same night had drinks with friends (one or two according to
them) and retired about Midnight. This is the last time any of his
friends claim to have seen or heard from him.
May 6th, 2007 evidence shows he did laundry, wrote out bills
and called a taxi. Monday May 7th and Tuesday May 8th
2007 he was a "No Call, No Show" at work (which is unlike him)
May 8th his friend Ray stopped at his apartment to see why he
hadn't seen him at work, there was no answer to his knocking. About 6pm
Ray called friends and finally me (Trevor's Father) to inquire if we had
seen Trevor. When he got a negative reply from everyone he and a friend
(Nathan) entered Trevor's apartment to find the apartment unoccupied and
in an orderly condition (as Trevor liked it). What raised concern and
perpetuated the missing person report was that; Trevor's wallet,
driver's license, professional licenses, credit card, money, check book
and cell phone along with car keys were all still in the apartment and
his car in the parking lot. After seeing this Ray and his friend called
the LVMPD and reported Trevor missing. After the police did a so called
"Welfare Check" of the apartment Ray called to inform me that
he had reported Trevor missing.
May 9th I contacted LVMPD and spoke with detective Marin
introduced myself and asked him to keep us informed.
May 10th after work my family and I drove the 12 hour trip
arriving about noon Friday May 11th
time, we went straight to the apartment and contacted Ray and met with
Saleena at the complex. I called detective Marin and asked if the
apartment was a crime scene, and his reply was it was not. I then
contacted the apartment manager and arranged to view the apartment.
While looking around the apartment and without the manager's knowledge
we were able to appropriate Trevor's Cell Phone, Wallet, and keys. After
reviewing the phone messages and out going calls we were able to
determine that the last call was made from the phone was to a taxi
service. We attempted contacting detective Marin and were not able to
get any reply.
then traveled to the taxi service and were told that under the privacy
rights law they could not divulge any information, but they suggested
that we visit the closest LVMPD sub station and told us which one and
gave directions to it, and to let the sub station
know we had crucial information on the case.
we arrived at the sub-station we spoke with a civilian report taker who
questioned the lead detective as to what to do. The detective gave her a
phone number as how to reach detective Marin at home, and he returned
our call at that time, we told him of the cell phone, the taxi service
etc, he said he would get back to us as soon as possible. Detective
Marin called us later and informed us that he had gotten the information
from the taxi service and that "
" of "Nevada Center For Missing Loved Ones" in reference
to a search the following day.
May 12th My family and I met with
at RC Willey Summerlin and
proceeded to organize a
search of the area and the Red Rock area also. While doing so, Frank
pointed to a car and said that is your detective I introduced myself and
detective Marin took me away from others and said to prepare myself for
the worse and that Trevor probably committed suicide somewhere up in the
went into the desert and hills after the search of the immediate area ,
with the belief that I or someone on the search party would come across
Trevor's corpse, while we were searching detective Marin interviewed the
Manager of Loss Prevention and security tapes and interpreted that the
person who exited the taxi had wandered randomly around the
"desert" as if searching for something.
May 13th the search continued with the information that
detective Marin supplied.
May 14th (I unofficially viewed the same video) what I had
seen on the video was a person exiting the taxi traveling in a straight
line to the graded parking lot to the west turning north and looking at
the North Parking lot turning around proceeding back to the south and
looking back towards where the taxi had dropped him, then towards the
West. The information that detective Marin had imparted was misleading
as to Trevor seemingly wandering aimlessly the camera never showed the
person that exited the taxi as wandering or did it show desert, only the
graded overflow parking lot to the west. I keep saying "the person
that exited the taxi" because of the poor quality of the time lapse
our return to
any communication with detective Marin LVMPD has been spotty at best
with him rarely returning our calls (nearly weekly) and not returning
any e-mail. I was informed by detective Marin of a RUMOR that started
three months after Trevor went missing that he was in a rehab in
. After the detective imparted this there has been no further contact
with him, even though I've tried to contact him several times a week!
