IRVINE, CA (June 3, 2013): This afternoon, just before 4:00 p.m., Irvine Police Officers responded to a missing child report at the Las Palmas apartment complex (Irvine Boulevard /Jamboree Road). The missing child is 11-year-old, Quincy Perry, who was last seen by his mother at 2:45 PM outside their apartment. Their apartment is located in the southwest corner of the complex. Quincy ran off, towards the south exit to the complex while his mother was discussing his behavior with his bus driver. His mother waited approximately 45 minutes to call police because she believed he would return to their apartment. Quincy has a mild intellectual disability but is able to communicate and function at an age appropriate level. He has run away in the past under similar circumstances.
Irvine police officers and department volunteers have been continually searching the area since receiving the call. The Orange County Sheriff’s Department has provided a helicopter and bloodhound team to assist with the efforts.
Quincy is described as a male, black with short black hair. He has brown eyes, is 5’1” tall and weighs approximately 130 pounds. He was last seen wearing a red short sleeved shirt over black long sleeved shirt, black sweats and tennis shoes with a checkered pattern.
Quincy is being considered a critical missing person. Anyone with information is asked to contact the police department at 949-724-7200.
