WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Texas—Tue Williamson County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) have confirmed that the skeletal remains found Oct. 11 near 45 Toll Road and Mopac have been identified as missing person Timothy Perez, 32, of Conroe.

Perez went missing March 5 after traveling from Austin to Houston, where he was last seen at the intersection of Interstate 35 and West Parmer Lane. Perez was the focus of an RRPD missing-persons investigation after the Austin Police Department (APD) halted its search on April 8.
“Our case arose as a follow-up to a missing persons investigation by the Austin Police Department. In our only encounter with Mr. Perez, he refused to identify himself and we were unaware of the APD investigation at the time. We had no reason to withhold his freedom as he had committed no crime and did not meet the criteria for emergency psychiatric confinement,” explained Nick Oliver, RRPD Public Information Specialist.
Perez is from Conroe and was last seen in Round Rock. His car was found abandoned along Interstate 35 near Parmer Lane.
