The 32 year old was last seen in Austin, Texas on March 5, 2022. He disappeared while driving from his home in Conroe to visit his brother in Austin, Texas.
Timothy called his father at 12:30 am, saying he had gotten lost and needed help. His father told him to pull over so he could come get him. At 2:00 am Timothy called his brother, but his brother missed the call.
At 4:20 am the police called Timothy’s father to report Timothy’s vehicle had been found abandoned along I-35 near West Palmer Lane in Austin.
His vehicle was found about 15 miles away from his brother’s house, with a cold engine and empty gas tank.
On March 6 the Round Rock police received a call from the St. William Catholic Church on March 6, concerned over a man who was loitering in the area.
When the police arrived they met with a subject who refused to identify himself, but was identified as being Timothy a few days later. Perez left the scene without incident after being issued a criminal trespass warning.
This is the last confirmed a sighting of Timothy, but since there was no BOLO (be on the lookout for) for him the police did not realize he was a missing person.
Timothy’s phone last pinged in the Conroe area on March 16, 2022. According to the search coordinator, the phone was turned on for a brief moment before being shut back off, and has not yet been located.
The Austin Police Department says Timothy was contacted by Round Rock Police and Cedar Park Police, and states during his communications with authorities he told officers we was OK. They subsequently removed him from their missing person’s database. However, his case remains open with the Round Rock Police Department.
On October 11, 2022, a worker found human remains in a field off State Highway 45 in Williamson County, across the street from the Blessing RV Park and Manufactured Home Community.

A cause of death has not been determined. Authorities state they did not find any obvious signs of criminal activity.
