Danbury police search for missing 20-year-old delivery driver whose car was found on fire in Brewster, N.Y.

DANBURY — Police are searching for a missing 20-year-old food delivery driver whose car was found torched in Brewster, N.Y., last week.

The search for Carlos Reyes led authorities to the Ball Pond area, where a search-and-seizure warrant was executed Thursday on a Ball Pond Road property for possible evidence or clues connected to the investigation.

Reyes was last seen by his family around 11 p.m. March 28, and his 2008 gray four-door Infiniti sedan was found engulfed in flames in Brewster, N.Y., the next night, according to Danbury police.

After extinguishing the flames and determining the vehicle was unoccupied, Danury police said they conducted an extensive search of the surrounding area with help from New York State Police, but found “no signs of Reyes.”

Danbury police said Thursday’s search on Ball Pond Road, during which officers were seen searching a nearby pond and storm drains, “ended with collecting surveillance footage and evidence associated with the missing person.”

With the case still under investigation, Danbury police say their investigators are “working with Reyes’ family and other sources to obtain further information.”

Danbury police say Reyes was known to work as a DoorDash driver and driver-for-hire, and to frequent Danbury, Waterbury and Naugatuck. DoorDash is an online food ordering and food delivery platform.

Reyes is described as 5 feet, 10 inches tall, roughly 170 pounds with a fit build, brown eyes and brown hair and facial hair.
