PRESS RELEASE: A Father's Plea - Trevor Morse

Seeking coverage on the following missing person case on the one year anniversary of his disappearance:

A Father’s plea – Trevor Morse missing local from Las Vegas , NV since May 6, 2007.

Las Vegas, NV, May 2008 -- All over the nation good people going about their normal days go missing…vanish. It does not matter if it's a major metropolitan area or small town. People of all ages and all walks of life go missing. Most of the time we only hear about the missing children, teenagers or mothers as they are the ones that media deems as newsworthy. Just in Las Vegas there have been several instances within the last year of women missing from around Las Vegas and Henderson NV , but there have also been adult men missing that the public never hears about. Unfortunately some of the missing were not found alive and others have never been found. I am not demeaning or otherwise diminishing the worry, heartbreak and concern of the families of the missing children, teenagers or mothers, but when it is an adult man no-one notices or cares! Missing adult men are the least concern of law enforcement.

I am the father of a missing adult male. My son, Trevor Morse, relocated to Las Vegas NV in 2006 to work as an electrician for a major contractor. To say a little about Trevor Morse, and affirm who he was, and our prayers and hopes are he still is, Trevor was born and welcomed into our loving family in El Paso , Texas on the 20th of October 1976. Trevor attended Irvin High School in El Paso and graduated in 1996. In 1999 he proudly completed his State of Texas Journeyman ’s requirements and started on a career that took him to many states to work. These locations included Texas , New Mexico , Arizona , and Nevada . It was in Nevada where he disappeared on Sunday, May 6, 2007, from the affluent, upscale neighborhood located on the west side of Las Vegas , NV .

The circumstances of his disappearance are baffling to say the least. What follows is a short recap of Trevor's action on the day before he disappeared (Saturday, May 5, 2007) and on the day he did go missing (Sunday, May 6, 2007). On that Saturday, Trevor watched a televised fight with friends at their house and asked his friends to pick up sun glasses at the swap meet that they would be attending. He later met other friends at a night club for a couple beers and then retired home around midnight. On Sunday, the day of the disappearance, evidence shows Trevor writing checks for bills, doing laundry, going about life as normal. At about 3:00 p.m. on May 6, 2007 a call was made from his cell phone to a taxi service; with the taxi supposedly picking him up and then dropping that person off in the Red Rock Canyon area at a popular furniture store. No-one has seen or heard from him since; not family, not friends nor his employer.

Few can ever know what the family and friends are faced with when their loved one disappears. I can't even explain accurately what we all have endured and continue to endure on a daily basis since Trevor’s disappearance. To make matters worse in the midst of this emotional upheaval, this emotional rollercoaster, we also have to endure what we perceive to be lack of cooperation by the very public officials that we put our trust in to find answers for us, to find Trevor for us. Phone calls, letters and emails are not answered by those very people we sought out and put our faith in to find our missing loved one. How can these public officials not keep the family in the loop, keep us simply updated? But, through this lack of communication with these officials, who rightfully should be the ones helping us, there are gratefully those that come to our support. I would like to acknowledge and send tender and special thanks to the organizations and friends that performed searches, posted fliers, and continue to check up on us, even now one year later, to make sure we are okay and who let us know that Trevor's case will never be out of their minds until answers come forth.

We, Trevor’s parents, and his family and friends are asking the media and the public to please help us find answers. Help us find Trevor.

If you have any information please contact LVMPD Missing Persons Dept (702) 828-5678 Case # 070508-2842 or your local law enforcement NCIC#:M-236504733.

I'm so sorry to hear of this man's disappearance. My prayers are with your family. I am the stepmom of Justin Gaines, the college student that went missing from Duluth, GA (http://www.justingaines.com). Although I live in Ohio, please let me know if there's anything I can do from here.
