LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- A film studio executive with 20th Century Fox in Los Angeles is missing.

Gavin Smith, 57, disappeared on Tuesday night. He was last seen at a home in Oak Park, leaving in his Mercedes.

Smith's family called police and told them something was wrong.

"He was reported missing the following day, May 2, and his family is concerned and we are certainly looking for him and we are asking for the public's help in locating Mr. Smith," said L.A. Sheriff's Public Information Officer Steve Whitmore.

Smith's sister said it is unusual because Smith did not pick up his son Wednesday morning to take him to school, which is out of character.
