The 29 âyear-old was last seen on Wilshire Boulevard just north of the 110 Freeway in the area where he resides last Monday.
Originally from Ohio, Thiede moved to Los Angeles to start a business and had been driving for Uber and Lyft to help make ends meet.
Thiedeâs mother says his last phone call was to 911 last Monday around 11 a.m., but the call disconnected before a dispatcher picked up.
No one has heard from Thiede since and all of his social media accounts have been deleted.

“Weâre really getting concerned now,” said Kevin Young, a friend. “Right now a week has gone by.”
Today, friends like Yokeena Jamar, handed out flyers at Burlington and Venice to help raise awareness.
“We’re all extremely concerned,” she said.
A homeowner told Mills he believe he saw Thiede’s car parked in front of his home.
“I drive out,” says Danny Perez, “I notice the car. I notice it but didn’t pay attention to what it was.” He says it was parked there for “a couple of days.”
Authorities said Thiedeâs 2014 black Nissan Altima is also missing. The vehicle has the California license plate of 7CSD450.MORE NEWS: Latino Restaurant Association Kicks Off DINE LATINO Restaurant Week
