Update 11-24-2017:

On November 24, 2017 at 6:47 PM, Perris Deputies responded to a call for service in front of the Perris Station where the reporting party was out with Dakarai Evans, our missing 19 year old autistic adult.  When deputies arrived, they confirmed it was Dakarai Evans who had been missing since Thursday morning, November 23.  Evans was medically evaluated by California Department of Fire and AMR and seemed in good health.   Dakarai was released to his mother at the station. 


The Perris Police Department is seeking the public’s help in locating 19 year old Dakarai Evans of Perris.  On November 23, 2017, at 8:25 AM, deputies assigned to the Perris Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to the area of 1100 Block of Perrisito Street, Perris regarding a missing person.  Deputies arrived and spoke with Dakarai’s mother who stated he left the residence and she did not know where he went.  Dakarai Evans is 19 years old, but has the mental capacity of a 6 year old, and is autistic.  Dakarai has done this in the past and has been found at local businesses, and/or walking around the neighborhood.  He will not engage anyone in conversation, but will talk to you if you engage him first.  Dakarai is considered at risk because of his mental capacity. 

Dakarai Evans is described as a black male adult, 5’-05”, 155 pounds, brown hair, brown eyes.  He wears thick rimmed LaCoste eye glasses that are very distinctive looking.  He was last seen wearing a dark pair of sweats with a thin Raiders logo on the side, a white t-shirt, a dark colored hoodie and flip flops.  Dakarai will keep to himself, but will seek out food and drink when he gets hungry. 

Perris Police Department Officers utilized a Riverside County Sheriff bloodhound, but met with negative results.  Perris Police Department Officers, along with detectives have been canvassing the business area off of 4th Street in Perris trying to locate Dakarai.  His description was provided to all surrounding law enforcement agencies, including hospitals.  The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to call sheriff’s dispatch at (951) 776-1099 or contact Deputy Sison at (951) 210-1000.
