The executive, who works in Fox's Calabasas office and is the branch manager for theaters in Dallas and Oklahoma City, was last seen in his Mercedes 420E sedan on Tuesday evening near the Oak Park home he shares with his family.
"We are very concerned about Gavin," Fox distribution president Chris Aronson tells The Hollywood Reporter. "We are actively doing what we can to assist the L.A. Sheriff's department." Aronson says there was no indication in advance of any problems that might have led to Smith's disappearance.
Law enforcement officials are asking people with information to call 800-222-TIPS (8477) or text "TIPLA" plus the tip to 274637 or Crimes.
