Details of Disappearance
Perkins was last seen in San Diego, California on October 23, 2016. He lived in Anaheim, California, but at the time of his disappearance he was working at the Casa De Las Calaveras event in San Diego, and staying at a hotel.
That evening, Perkins called 911 and said he was suffering from blackouts. He was taken by ambulance from his hotel to the University of California at San Diego Medical Center's emergency room, but left three hours later, at 10:00 p.m. It's unclear whether or not he was treated. He walked north on Front Street and westbound on Dickerson or Dove after leaving the hospital.
Perkins called 911 several times over the next few hours; two of the calls were between 14 and 17 minutes long. He also placed two calls to friends at approximately 4:00 a.m., but neither of them picked up and he didn't leave any messages. His last phone call was at 6:16 a.m. on October 24; the phone battery apparently died after that. Perkins has never been heard from again.
Perkins is a graduate of Katella High School and the Art Center College of Design. His case remains unsolved.
