Kristian Perez was reported missing by his mother after failing to return home from the school formal in Orofino, a town of 3,000 in the Nez Perce Indian Reservation, on Saturday night.

Kristian was driven to the event by a relative but signed out just after 9:30 p.m., according to the Orofino Police Department.

Investigators subsequently found the teen's tuxedo jacket, a shoe and his broken cell phone near that vehicle, according to a police statement.

Police canines tracked Kristian's scent to a parking lot, not far from where the prom was held. However, the scent trail ended there and investigators believe the teen may have entered a vehicle from that point.

Reports of the disappearance have since led to a possible sighting in the town of Lewiston, Idaho, about 40 miles west of Orofino.

Police have not yet confirmed the sighting.
