Police are asking for help locating Medina-Chevez's dark blue 2008 Nissan Pathfind SUV.

At a press conference Monday afternoon, CMPD Maj. Cam Selvey said the case was transferred from the missing persons to the homicide unit because the homicide unit has more resources.

The Charlotte Observer reports that Selvey said during a press conference Monday afternoon that Medina-Chevez is in “grave danger.”

"He’s not been seen nor heard from by his family, and that’s unusual,” Selvey said.

Medina-Chevez was driving a dark blue 2008 Nissan Pathfinder SUV with North Carolina plate PDV-4382.  Police have published photos of him and the vehicle.
