RENO, NV (KRNV & Mynews4.com) -Gavin Smith, 57, a FOX Executive from Los Angeles, has been missing since May 1st and it turns out, his brother lives in Reno and his sister lives in Minden.

“I want to believe he's on a sunny beach down in Mexico, chilling out and having a couple of margaritas,” says brother, Paris Romano.

That is the best case scenario according to Gavin Smith's family. He was last seen at a friend’s house in Oak Park, California. He left the property in his black Mercedes-Benzes e420 sedan between 9 and 10 p.m., according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. Greg Smith who lives in Reno, says this is not like his brother.

“He's a family man. He loves his boys with all of his heart. He would not leave them hanging or us for that matter,” says Smith.

His sister, Tara Addeo, says the worst part is the unknown.

“I don't know if I should cry or be mad at him because he left, which I can't believe he did. I just don't know how to channel and filter the pain of not having one of my brothers here,” says Addeo.

The family wants everyone to keep their eyes and ears open because he's a hard guy to miss. The former college basketball player is 6 foot 6. And his Mercedes stands out because it has surf racks on the top of it. At this point, his family is praying someone will notice him and contact authorities.

“Come home. Let us know, just give us a call. So we can quit worrying about you. We love you. We love you. That's what I would tell him,” says Romano.

Because life is incomplete without him.

“Our family isn't the same without you. It's just not. We need all of us together. And his sons needs him. We're in pain. We're just in 24 hour constant pain,” says Addeo.

We do "Amber Allert's" when kid's go missing, why not do them on adult's as well? Maybe someone,somewhere will see it and report. I hope for the family's sake, they find him safe and well.

This reminds me of the Patrick Carnes case from last year that took place off I-80 and of last week's disappearance of a Californian Man in his 60s that was driving to Henderson, Nevada. I hope this info helps.
