Gavin Smith, a longtime Fox movie distribution exec, has been missing for nearly a week.
His son, USC basketball forward Evan Smith, has taken to Twitter to publicize the plight of his 57-year-old father, who played on UCLA's 1975 championship team under John Wooden.
Dad was reported missing Tuesday:
Smith was last seen at a friend's house Ventura County's Oak Park area between 9:00 and 10:00 p.m. on May 1, according to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.
City News Service says he was actually seen driving away from the home in the 500 block of Callwood Court.
Smith was driving a black, 2000 four-door Mercedes E Class (a 420 badged as a 500), deputies say. It has tinted windows, soft racks on the roof and California plate number 6EKT044. It's also missing.
Someone at 20th Century Fox distribution called authorities, according to a sheriff's statement.
If you've seen Gavin Smith, call detectives at 323-890-5500.
Please note that tarot will pick up TRENDS /VIBRATIONS of PAST PRESENT AND FUTURE - it will pick up anything that is 'out there' true news or false news - either way it can throw light on what is 'in the air' - please bear this in mind when you are reading the insights.
It is very important that 'readers' of the blog understand this, therefore one has to be very discerning when reading. Media news can put out stories that are not factual or are pre -mediated but Tarot can pick that up. It does,nt mean that tarot is wrong, it shows tarot can see what might be suggested. However when writing the tarot it may be taken as fact.
Tarot does not have all the answers or claim to solve issues. All it can do is show what it feels may be of USE or point out possibilities.

7TH MAY 2012
Gavin has been missing since Tuesday May 1st. I am hoping to catch up with all the requests on the blogger but I have been asked about this urgent request and to look at Tarot. Tarot looks at past present and future trends which are possibilities and not considered FACT. Please take note of all important notices on the blogger. I write down what I see and if something helps then I am glad to assist. Tarot is not considered 100 per cent accurate by Law and for that reason you should always check factual sources.
Some issues raised in Tarot may be background white noise and not relevant to his actual whereabouts but I have to write everything I get and leave it as it is.
The first card that I have for Gavin is 6 of cups which just shows me that he met with an old friend. This is a nice card as a rule and does not give out any indication of anything bad to begin with but there are other elements here. This card shows he was linked to somewhere very familiar and could be to a family or even to a lover.
The number here is 6 . The general direction is West - but there may be a North East connection. Seems to me that there is an element of pleasure here but at the same time I am sensing some kind of threatening environment? Possibilities of drink and drugs can come up here or sexual pleasure but I think I am seeing him going towards the North East and I do think this man drinks or has been drinking.
He may even be connected to eating and drinking in general somewhere but I am seeing him going towards his home town. Did he stop off somewhere on the way to eat and drink?
Again there are water elements in the cups cards, so Im feeling initially that there was an invitation to go somewhere to join friends and perhaps he might not even wanted to go or was not that keen at first, definitely feeling some offer to have or do something and a sense of refusal.
There appears to be a boredom or apathy here and I just seem to feel as though he has been drowning sorrows over something. Its a bit jumbled but seems to be something like that in the mix. I am seeing him passing or being near a river or a white bridge, or just a bridge which could be in a name and a small building near there. I feel as though there is some kind of sorrow or feeling sorry about something. Maybe he could not do something and apologised?
I see him going towards a familiar home or hometown and something unexpected happening but I feel that this is to do with water or liquids. I am seeing someone else in the picture, someone he knew either a lover or friend? see movement towards a lake or name of a lake here.
I dont know if he drinks a lot or not but was he drinking and driving? I am seeing something white here and rural countryside. He may have met up with a woman? there may be some unhealthy type of associations in his cards but generally with these upright cards I am not sure of anything negative right now except for that sting of threat that comes up earlier.
Gardens and North Facing garden walls can come up here and damp places along with basements and cellars, water elements, damp and decay. There might be deception here in love or friendship.
Did he have new employment on the way? Im also getting something about memories here? family life and children inparticular come up. Some kind of change of residence or career are presented here but seems to be in the early stages on this card and I feel as though there are links to the past. I seem to see him living in the moment but there are illusions in this . Im seeing some kind of choice being given to him. Also see music in the cards here a guitar for some reason. This man is very talented and has a lot of hidden talents.
Let me just look at the next card
In this card it can suggest getting involved in quarrels. There are sports links on this card and a group of people. It gives me the impression that perhaps being in a situation where something negative has broken out here. I might be wrong and it just might be that he is somewhere there are sports or people linked to sports. There is a hotel or some complex here. I see being near water or stream and I just feel that there has been some argument that is quite fierce.
I could be wrong but that is what this card tells me unless it just tells us that he is near some sporting complex of some kind as fields and football fields can come up in this card. Sandy gravelly roads , or dusty roads come up and there might be a car with mechanical problems too or it could have crashed. There is a hill somewhere here nearby and also possibly tarmac or some form of airstrip but not sure how close that is. Closet feelings here.
Walls and fences come up in the first and this card . How prominent they are I am not sure, but thats the indication I have maybe its in a name and not actual, either way I place it once again.
I have a 5 here and some kind of feeling of 'being delayed'' - there are some kind of legal problems here. The feeling of being 'thrown' is here.
Some kind of stressful situation and really bad arguments might even be with a woman or about a woman but I dont want to put fantasy here or consider these are facts. Its just what it is suggesting. Theres something here about financial rewards and quarrelling over that? A situation gets nasty and there seems to be a change of plan or its about a change of plan that has not been received very well by someone?
A lot of frustration here. I am not sure if its past present or future but number 5 might be useful.
There may be problems with his car. Im seeing red here and its possible someone has head/neck injury? Did someone get the boot? Im sensing 'contradictions' here by someone. South is primary but there is a link back to North and East so the North East is connected first card and this one too. It might just be starting off point or ending point I cant be sure . I am feeling that a message should have arrived and it has not and Im seeing some kind of trip postponed or halted in some way.
Someones arguing a lot here, very demanding and hostile. I feel as though he between towns.
Places could be described as lavish public buildings public halls, auditoriums, parks; places that have names or are actual palaces, castles, forts or sound 'grand'. Places that are hard to get to like Also deserts, forests, farm and pasture land and areas where wild animals roam. I associate him with rich looking places, with dramatic colours. Also there are heat references here so inside a house near fireplaces, chimneys. Names that sound like any of this may be helpful. He has been to some opulent places by the seems of it but its whether any of the connections mentioned are useful or not?
The heat reference could also be fire or flames.
Asking when Gavin will be found I have a 5 again so maybe within a 5 or a five route, either can be the case. This card gives us very good advice and tells us that two people know where he is and may very well come forward with some information. This is a spiritual, church or religious reference card but it is also good counsel so I think he will be found. His car will be found too. He may be on a fork in a road. Schools - teachers and mentors can come up here but I think we will have an explanation given . If Gavin is not found by May 20th I will come back again to review this Tarot. There may be a B or J initial here for place or person not guaranteed but possible. Also seeing something about 'Keys' or Quay.
It is usual to try to read all the Tarot together but East comes up here and South, so South East leaning. Combining all the factors might help in providing some clues to Gavin but Gardens and Walls do come up here too as do fences and enclosures . I hope something does help. Im sure I may have missed or overlooked some information but if so I will come back to write it.

Breakthrough in hunt for married Hollywood executive missing for a month as he’s spotted having dinner with woman in California
But it has now emerged that Mr Smith was seen having dinner with a woman on May 7 at Taco Temple in Morro Bay, according to a diner sitting nearby.
David Brill said that he saw the executive with a tall woman at the Mexican restaurant but didn't realise who it was until the next day.
He said: 'I noticed on the Yahoo main page that there was a news link to a missing Hollywood executive,' Brill told news station NBC LA.
'I happened to click on the link, saw the photo, and said, "Oh boy, that's the guy I saw in the restaurant the previous night".'
A waitress at the restaurant confirmed Brill's account saying she served the quiet couple who said they were from 'down south'.

His marriage was in turmoil. His son had stopped speaking to him. His house was underwater. And then he disappeared.
Adding to the family’s stress was the fact that they were underwater on their mortgage and had been trying to sell their house. But friends say they doubt those financial problems would lead Smith to either abandon his family or commit suicide. “He’s a pretty frugal guy,” Van Tassell says. “He always had a steady job, Lisa didn’t work, and they bought a house at the top of the market and it was upside down. I don’t think it was more than that.”

As Gavin has not been found in the sense of 'body' I am not going to move this case over to FOUND section as yet until there is a possibility of more news on the situation regardless of the current ruling.
