Police are asking for the public’s help in finding a Lake Elsinore man whose girlfriend was found dead inside a Poway motel Wednesday.

Police issued a news release on the pair’s disappearance Tuesday and stated the two had last been seen Aug. 4.

According to police, yesterday afternoon’s discovery of Stewart’s body in a Best Western Plus at 13845 Poway Road make Dorsey a person of interest.

“It appeared [Stewart] had been murdered elsewhere and transported to the motel where her body was found,” according to a statement from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

When police issued the Aug. 7 missing persons report, it stated the pair was “believed to be together and the circumstances surrounding their disappearance are unknown.”

The couple had last been spotted in the Lake Elsinore area, police said in the earlier report.
