Amber Lorraine Peirson, 25, was found dead with multiple stab wounds at a home in the 4000 block of Sunrise Avenue, near Stewart Avenue and Lamb Boulevard, according to the Clark County Coroner's Office.

Metro Police detectives are searching for Christopher Rodrigo Salguero, 23, as a suspect in the apparent homicide of Peirson. Salguero may still be in the neighborhood with some friends and could be traveling on foot, Metro announced.
