16-Year-Old High School Student Missing NR11068df

Los Angeles: A local family and the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) are asking for the public’s help in locating the 16-year-old who has been missing from the LAPD’s Van Nuys area.

On January 29, 2011, at around 7:00 p.m., Cyrus Aaron Parvizi attended a wrestling event in the 5700 block of West Century Boulevard. Parvizi was last seen in front of the Hilton Los Angeles Airport.   Parvizi did not return home in the evening and his family has not heard from him, causing them great concern. Cyrus does not have a history of running away and there is no evidence of foul play in his disappearance.

Parvizi is described as a male Hispanic, 5 feet 8 inches tall, 160 pounds with a medium build and medium complexion. 

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Parvizi is asked to call LAPD Van Nuys Division detectives at 818-374-0001. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
