According to Houston Police Department PIO Kese Smith, Young’s girlfriend reported him missing on Dec. 9 after he didn’t return home.
After his disappearance, KPRC 2 interviewed Young’s mother, Tiffany Robinson, who said her son graduated from Sam Houston State University and worked in accounting.
She also told KPRC 2 that he stuck to routines and it was uncharacteristic of him to not communicate.
“He sent me a text message about 11:30. It was a picture of his dog with the antlers on his head,” she said.
Young didn’t come back from his lunch break and his mother said she used an app to track his phone, which was found in the bushes near a bank off Voss Road. His car was also missing. Family and friends joined forces to search for their loved one, using the hashtag #BringTaylourHome on social media.
In December, Smith told KPRC 2 that HPD reviewed surveillance video from the bank but found no signs of foul play.
Monday, a friend of Young’s who organized search efforts spoke out.
“I just want to know what happened. I want to know who would do something like this to him,” said Autumn Beviacqua. “He was proud of the things he had, the things he accomplished. He was proud of his friends, his family and he loved to skateboard… literally always had a smile on his face.”
