A mother shared a heartbreaking plea with the public Monday after her son apparently vanished.
“He’s never done this and it’s now like he’s dropped off the face of the earth. And we’re searching for him. I don’t know where he is but I need to know where my son is,” said Christel Billingsly.
Billingsly's son Wesley, 24, was last seen by friends in Pacific Beach on June 12, nearly two weeks ago.
Around that time he was "couch surfing" at three friends' homes. One on Haines Street, another apartment on Diamond Street; and the other, on Grand Avenue.
“Something in my gut tells me something is wrong so we just started reaching out and calling people,” explained Christel, holding back tears.
No calls, texts, or social media posts have come from Wesley, something that Christel and his friends said is far from the norm.
His black Ford Expedition with California license plate 6HIN781 is also gone without a trace.
So far, Wesley’s mom has posted 500 flyers in PB and near San Diego State University.
The San Diego Police Department is investigating. Officers are asking anyone with information to contact the department at (619) 531-2277.
