Gavin Smith Missing: Police Search Home Of John And Chandrika Creech In Connection With The Fox Movie Executive's Disappearance

Posted: Updated:

The police may be getting close to something in the disappearance of Gavin Smith.

The 20th Century Fox movie executive went missing more than a month ago. But on Friday, Sheriff's investigators searched a San Fernando Valley home in California, which according to the Los Angeles Times, belongs to John and Chandrika Creech, in connection with the disappearance.

Residents told the Los Angeles Times that the investigators took five hours to search the home, before leaving with boxes, a computer and an SUV.

According to authorities, no arrests have been made. This is reportedly the second time deputies have search what is said to be the Creech's home.

But Lt. Dave Dolson of the Sheriff's office emphasized to the Los Angeles Times that the investigation remains a missing person case and not a homicide investigation. "We don't have anything indicating there was foul play involved," Dolson said. "We are not ruling it out, of course.... Everything's still on the table."

The Smith family launched a "Find Gavin Smith" campaign and recently offered up a $20,000 reward.

Some individuals told NBC that they saw Smith and a tall female companion at Taco Temple, a popular restaurant in Morro Bay, on May 7.

Smith is a distribution executive for 20th Century Fox who has worked on films like "Avatar" and "Star Wars." In 1975, he played on UCLA's championship basketball team under legendary Coach John Wooden.

He was last seen wearing purple workout pants and black and gray shoes, as he left the home of a family friend in Oak Park at about 10 p.m. on May 1 in his black Mercedes.
