Trevor Morse Missing Since May 6, 2007 from Las Vegas, NV
On Friday, May 6, 2011 marks another anniversary since our beloved son was supposedly last seen in Las Vegas, NV.
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. 2010 was an emotional rollercoaster with every new discovery of bodies in the Las Vegas, Nevada and surrounding area until their identities were uncovered and they were returned to their families.
In just the year of 2010 hundreds more have gone missing some recovered thankfully alive and well, and others closing a heartbreaking chapter in families’ lives, but many more added to the roster of MISSING without a clue. One is Heriberto “Nony” Herrera missing without a trace from Las Vegas May 14, 2010.
Many good endeavors have been initiated and/or instituted; for one the growth and successes of the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NAMUS.gov) for the nation's unidentified and missing offers more hope than ever before for bringing answers to the families of the missing. And, in support of strengthening NamUs is the Help Find the Missing Act "Billy’s Law" (Named after William “Billy” Smolinski) which has now been reintroduced as HR 1300. Also, all over the country communities are instituting better reporting policies such as cell phone tracking information made readily available to law enforcement (Kelsey's Law) to aid in finding the endangered missing. Though I support and cheer all of these it is still a bitter sweet waiting game as the minutes/hours/days lead into yet another year. I can't even explain accurately what we, Trevor's family, have endured and continue to endure on a daily basis since Trevor’s disappearance. 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, 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.
