Investigators on the case of missing 20th Century Fox executive Gavin Smith have discovered an SUV suspected of being connected to his disappearance, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The vehicle was seized Wednesday at a marijuana grow house in Granada Hills, the report said.
The gray SUV, which was impounded, is registered to John Creech, a suspected drug dealer whose wife allegedly had an affair with Smith and who was questioned about his disappearance, the report said.
"We believe that this truck, it's possible this truck, may have been involved, but we don't know yet," Los Angeles County Sheriff's homicide Detective Ty Labbe told reporters.
The vehicle will be examined for fingerprints and biological evidence.
The 57-year-old Smith was last seen May 1 in Oak Park. He was driving a 2000 black Mercedes-Benz 420 E with tinted windows, a roof rack and California license 6EKT044.
Smith, who lives in West Hills, was a long-time Fox distribution executive who worked in Calabasas. He was last seen driving away from a friend's home in the 500 block of Kellwood Court, where he had been staying.
