Matthew Weaver, 21, has been missing since August 10, 2018 from Granada Hills where he recently moved to after moving out of his stepmother, Brooke Tipton’s house in Simi Valley, California.  He was last seen about 9:30 p.m. on Aug. 10 in the 2600 block of Stearns Street in Simi Valley, California.  There are strange circumstances that lead up to his disappearance.

The family stated to Dateline that Matthew drove to a female friend’s house just after midnight to pick her up, and the pair partied together for the next few hours.  He dropped her off at 4:30 a.m. on Friday.

His silver BMW was spotted at Saddle Peak and Stunt roads and security cameras caught it heading past a gate and down a remote road called Topanga Tower Motorway, in Calabasas around 7:15 a.m.  He had also posted a SnapChat video of the view from the trail around 5:30 a.m.

Since you’re here

I have a small favor to ask. More people are reading Missing Persons of America than ever and asking for their family member to be shared. I do it because I believe that every single missing person matters, and they all need equal attention. It can’t be done any quicker, and with less boundaries than social media. Last year, I was bombarded daily with more and more cases to share.  I found myself falling behind as I work 10 hours a day to feature missing people. Also, the network has grown so large that we are in need of an internet host that can serve the growth, so the website does not go down. Many don’t realize that Missing Persons of America independent, investigative posting takes a lot of time and hard work to produce. Frankly, I need funds. If everyone who reads this website, who likes it, can help, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support Missing Persons of America and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
