MT. SHASTA, Calif. — The family of a San Francisco man who disappeared while staying in Mt. Shasta early this month are now offering a $25,000 reward for information that will lead to his location.

28-year-old Davohnte Morgan was last seen on May 5 and was reported missing to Mt. Shasta Police two days later. He has not been seen or heard from since.

According to Mt. Shasta Police, it was Morgan's girlfriend who reported him missing. She told investigators that they had gotten into an argument on the night of May 4, and she had broken up with him. They still spent the night together at the Cold Creek Inn, and she reported leaving early that morning to go watch the sun rise.

At 9 a.m. on May 5, Davohnte's girlfriend said that she crossed paths with him as she walked back to the room. She told investigators that "he still appeared upset" and they did not speak.

Mt. Shasta Police found surveillance video that showed Morgan walking southbound on Mt. Shasta Boulevard after 9 a.m., corroborating his girlfriend's story. Video continued to track his location until roughly 10 a.m.

"Cell phone records show that the last time his phone had been pinged, it was to a location in Oakland, CA on May 3rd, the day before he arrived in Mt Shasta," police said. "A second ping was done approximately a week later and confirmed that the phone had still not been turned on. The department also followed up on the use of a debit card believed to be in his possession, but the card was confirmed to not have been used since May 4."

Search and rescue teams used a cadaver dog in the area based on a "not very credible tip," but they found only dead wildlife.

"There is great concern for Davohnte at this point in the investigation as he has had no confirmable contact or activity," police said. "Family is adamant that he would not have gone missing without contacting them. No family members have heard from Davohnte since his disappearance."

Morgan's family has since hired a private investigator and started offering the sizable reward for information that leads to his return. Mt. Shasta Police says that it followed up on a number of leads, including visits to nearby cities, but no sightings have turned out to be Morgan.

Morgan is described as a black man, about five-foot eleven-inches tall, with a thin build. He wars a thin goatee and walks with a slight limp. He has tattoos on the top of his left hand and was last seen dressed in black sweatpants, a black turtleneck, and San Francisco 49ers slide rubber sandals.
