    CA - Gavin Smith, 57, Oak Park, 1 May 2012

    Los Angeles police said Saturday they had no leads in the missing persons case of Gavin Smith, a 20th Century Fox executive who has been missing since Tuesday night.

    A police spokeswoman told TheWrap on Saturday: "We have no updated information."

    Chris Aronson, who heads distribution at Fox, told TheWrap: “We are extremely concerned for Gavin and are doing everything possible to cooperate with the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department in order to locate him.”


    The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is seeking information about a 20th Century Fox executive, Gavin Smith, who has been missing since Tuesday night.

    Law enforcement officials issued a missing person’s bulletin for the 57-year-old movie distribution executive, who has worked at Fox for 18 years.

    “The missing person, Gavin Smith, was last seen at his residence on the 500 block of Callwood Court, in Oak Park between 9:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 1st, 2012,” the bulletin said.

    Smith left in his 2004 Mercedes 420E (California license plate number 6EKT044) and has not been heard from since, it said. He is described by police as 6 feet 6 inches tall, 210 pounds, grey hair with blonde highlights, green eyes and a goatee.

    The executive works in Fox's Calabasas office and is the branch manager for theaters in Dallas and Oklahoma City.

    Here's a better car description although this link says 2000 and the first link I posted said 2004.

    Smith left in a black 2000 Mercedes-Benz 420E with padded storage racks on the roof, tinted windows and license plate 6EKT044.

    So he was driving from Simi to ??? his own house? Where is that located? He works in Calabasas, and given his job it seems like he might live there (Calabasas is a nice area). If we knew where he was going, we could put together a map.

    If he lives in Calabasas (we don't know I guess) and he was headed home, there are really only two main routes he would have traveled- maybe three. At that time of night, there isn't a lot of traffic so I don't see him trying to drive some windy backroads type of way. It is freeways most of the way.
    So, I think a carjacking/robbery while he was stopped at some intersection. When I grew up sorta near that area years ago that was pretty common. Also the "follow home". But I would guess based on his level of profession, that he might live in a gate guarded community or live in a house with security cameras.

    A few more details plus video at this LINK...

    "My biggest concern is that he did not pick up his son, which he was supposed to pick up on Wednesday morning to take him to school, and that is a concern for me," said Tara Addeo, Smith's sister. She also says he is a responsible parent who would not abandon his family.

    Smith's wife reported him missing on Wednesday. The L.A. County Sherriff's Department says they do not suspect foul play at this point.

    Smith's son, Evan Smith, was a forward on USC basketball team this past season.

    The younger Smith turned to Twitter Saturday in an effort to help find his father.

    "Please help me find my dad Gavin Smith," he tweeted. "More people looking the better."

    Interesting new facts here. Basically, Mr. Smith was staying with friends in Oak Park- not at the family home. The family has not addressed the reasons for this. Anyways, the friends were in bed/getting ready for bed and Mr. Smith just got up and left without a word to them. He left personal belongings behind. No one knows where he was going.

    Was he going to visit his wife to talk? A girlfriend? Quick trip to the store? Or I hate to say it- but we all might be thinking it- suicide?
