WEST HILLS (CBS) — Gavin Smith has not been seen for more than a month and detectives have few clues as to where the father of three and FOX executive might be.
Smith’s family would not speak about the investigation Monday night but they are reportedly set to announce a $20,000 reward Tuesday for information that will help bring him home.
The UCLA graduate once played on one of Coach John Wooden’s championship basketball teams.
Smith has lived in a tight-knit West Hill neighborhood for years and neighbors say Smith’s disappearance is out of character.
Neighbor Carlos Lima told CBS2 that the 57-year-old is a devoted father and husband who is always friendly.
Smith worked out of a Calabasas office. He was temporarily living in Oak Park, where he was last seen driving his Mercedes with tinted windows. Authorities said he left behind his cell phone charger, shaving kit and other items.
His family has not heard from him all this time. Investigators say they family now hopes a reward will help garner information that will lead to Smith’s return.
