Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Carrillo was a promoter who often worked for the nightclub Evolution Waikiki on Ena Road and Kalakaua Avenue in Honolulu, Hawaii in 2000.
His girlfriend told authorities she saw Carrillo inside the club at approximately 2:00 a.m. on July 4, 2000. She claimed that one of the bar's bouncers told her to wait outside the building at that time before driving her against her will to the Pearlridge area of Honolulu.
Carrillo's girlfriend summoned authorities after the man released her approximately two hours later. The bouncer, who was employed by a private security firm to work at Evolution Waikiki, was arrested that day for kidnapping.
Other club employees told investigators that Carrillo and the bouncer had an argument during the early morning hours. An altercation may have occurred outside the bar between 2:00 and 5:00 a.m. A witness stated that a man matching Carrillo's description was knocked down on the street by unidentified individuals in that time frame. Authorities have not confirmed that the man was indeed Carrillo.
The bouncer claimed that he drove Carrillo to Honolulu International Airport on the morning of July 4. He said that Carrillo planned to fly to Las Vegas, Nevada. Authorities searched flight manifests, but could not find any indication that Carrillo boarded a plane to the mainland.
Investigators do not know if Carrillo used a false name when purchasing a ticket and have been unable to confirm that he left Hawaii. He had not mentioned any possible travel plans to his loved ones at the time of his disappearance.
Authorities discovered a stained piece of carpet in a dumpster near Evolution Waikiki shortly after Carrillo vanished. Investigators conducted tests to determine if the stain was human blood or another substance, but the results were not publicly released. A club employee stated that the carpet may have been stained from a water leak at the bar earlier in the week. Evolution Waikiki had been cited for minor violations prior to Carrillo's disappearance, mainly for noise complaints.
No charges have been filed against anyone in connection with Carrillo's case. He moved to Hawaii in December 1999 from San Diego, California. Carrillo previously worked for No Cover magazine, an online publication. He and his girlfriend resided on the North Shore of Honolulu in 2000.
Carrillo has never been heard from again and his disappearance remains unsolved.

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 2–5% of missing children in Europe.
By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends.
Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
