CA - Ronald 'Ronnie' Chavez, 22, Victorville, 29 April 2016
Ronnie Chavez, 22, was diagnosed with mental illness a few weeks ago and has been missing since the family took a road trip last week to Laughlin, Nevada.
On Friday night Ronald, who was wearing red, white and blue swimming trunks, a black shirt and tennis shoes told his family he was going swimming. When Ronald did not return a few hours after they went to check on him. They noticed that Ronald left in their vehicle, traveling the I-40 to the I-15 South all without money in his possession, which led to the call for gas on Friday, April 27th. Ronnie was last seen on surveillance video on April 29 at a gas station in Victorville.
Ronald was heading back to their Pico Rivera home from Laughlin, Nevada and realized that he needed gas when he was in Victorville. He called his mother's cell phone from the gas station on Mariposa and Bear Valley Road asking her to transfer some gas money to him. Rosa transferred $50 to his account at 5:00 a.m. on Friday, April 27th. Ronnie then hung up with her but did not arrive home.
His mother eventually looked at his cell phone that was left at their home prior to him going to Laughlin and noticed there were three missed calls from Ronald made to his own phone. “I think maybe he was no longer in the right state of mind and did not remember my cell phone number after the first call. Our family has cell phones with all the same area code and prefix so maybe he thought he was calling me or his father.”
The vehicle Ronald was driving was located by CHP officers on the I-15 freeway, in Baker which is the opposite direction of his home on Saturday afternoon. The vehicle appeared to have run out of gas. The family now has the vehicle back and located the key belonging to the vehicle inside. The key was previously attached to the key to their Laughlin condo but the condo key is no longer attached.
The $50 transferred to him remains unused.
