Family members last saw Collins, 29, at about 4 p.m. on Feb. 15 when he left his residence wearing dark pants and an unknown colored shirt.

Collins, also known as “Ray Rich,” was on his way to Compton to meet a friend and discuss filming a music video the following day, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department stated following his disappearance.

Investigators said Collins was seen leaving the area of Alondra Boulevard and Dwight Avenue (map) in his dark gray Toyota Camry on Feb. 16 at about 2 a.m.

Nearly one hour later, witnesses observed a man exit Collins’ car and walk east on Raymond Street.
