ROCKLIN, Calif. — Rocklin police are asking the public for help in finding the driver who killed a 30-year-old man in a hit-and-run on Feb. 4. 

Officers found Trevor Swahn in the road near Sierra College Boulevard and Scriber way. They believed Swahn was hit by a car.  

Medical personnel pronounced Swahn dead at the scene. Police released a picture of Swahn and described him as a 30-year-old man with physical disabilities.   

The victim's father, Roger Swahn, took to Facebook to share an emotional post about the loss of his son.

Trevor Swahn was killed in a hit-and-run near Sierra College Boulevard near Scriber Way on Feb. 4, Rocklin police say.

The elder Swahn wrote that his son lived with schizophrenia, a mental health disorder he describes as "hideous."

Roger Swahn and his wife are devastated that their son battled the disease only to be struck down in a horrific way, he wrote on Facebook.
