Teen Vanishes on Prom Night, Leaves Behind Tuxedo Jacket and Smashed Phone
Kristian Perez, 17, signed out of his Idaho prom at about 9:30 p.m. on April 15.
The search is on for an Idaho teen who vanished following his high school prom over the weekend.
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.
Thus far, the Orofino Police Department does not believe Kristian has contacted any friends or family since leaving the prom.
The department is asking anyone with information to call (208) 476-5551.
