Details of Disappearance

Ayon was last seen leaving a friend's house in Unity, Wisconsin at 3:45 a.m. on October 3, 2020. She lived in Loyal, Wisconsin at the time. She was driving a black 2015 Chevrolet Impala with the Wisconsin license plate number AHZ-2509; a photo of it is posted with this case summary. It has never been recovered.

She had plans to meet two friends later that day to go shopping, but never showed up for their meeting or contacted them. She has never been heard from again. Since Ayon's disappearance, there has not been any activity of her bank accounts. She did not have a passport and there is no indication that she left the United States.

Prior to her disappearance, Ayon had ended her relationship with Jesus Contreras Perez, who is the father of her child. She told friends that he was physically abusive, had threatened her life and had been unfaithful to her. She also said he was very jealous and, once when he saw her at a tavern with two men, "freaked out" and threatened to hurt her if he saw her with the men again. Ayon also claimed Contreras Perez had been following her, and that if anything happened to her, he probably did it.

Contreras Perez was charged with stalking resulting in bodily harm in Ayon's case in May 2021. In June, he was additionally charged with being a party to the crimes of first-degree intentional homicide, hiding a corpse and stalking. A photo of Contreras Perez is posted with this case summary. He is awaiting trial. If convicted, he faces life in prison.

His Google search history for the dates of September 26 and 27, 2020 showed searches for things such as "how to make a homemade silencer", "building a fuel filter suppressor", and "homemade suppressor demo for .30-06". Authorities also determined that Contreras Perez and Ayon's cellular phones were in the same locations at the same time on the day of her disappearance. Contreras Perez later reported he had misplaced his phone, which was a work-issued device.

Ayon's body has not been recovered, but authorities believe they have enough evidence to prove their case against Contreras Perez at trial. Foul play is suspected in Ayon's case due to the circumstances involved.
