Southern California authorities say they’ve found the car of a 20th Century Fox executive who vanished nearly a year ago and they now believe he is dead.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says a Mercedes-Benz registered to Gavin Smith was found Thursday at a Simi Valley storage facility.
Authorities say that the storage facility was linked to a man who’s jailed on an unrelated drug conviction.

Creech is a convicted drug dealer whose wife allegedly had an affair with Smith.
Chandrika Creech met Smith in therapy, according to a person familiar with the case who did not want to be named because the investigation is ongoing.
Based on the vehicle’s condition and information developed from the investigation, homicide detectives are now investigating the case as a homicide, a sheriff’s statement said.
Smith’s body has not yet been recovered, sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said.
UPDATE II: from the UK Daily Mail - ‘This was in fact a murder’: Missing movie executive WAS killed, say police, as they find his Mercedes in the garage of his mistress’ drug dealing husband.
Missing Hollywood executive Gavin Smith was murdered, the Los Angeles sheriff said last night, as they found his car in the garage belonging to a person of interest in the case.
Smith went missing on May 1, 2012, and though investigators had a number of leads, they never found concrete proof of the 20th Century Fox executive’s death.
That all changed last night when the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says the Mercedes-Benz registered to Gavin Smith was found at a Simi Valley storage facility that belonged to John Creech.
Mr Creech is the husband of Smith’s purported mistress, Chandrika Creech, and he is now in jail on unrelated drug charges.

Creech, who is currently serving eight years in Los Angeles County Men’s Central Jail, has been named a person of interest in the case.

26 year old Terrilynn Monnette has been missing since the early hours of Saturday morning, March 2, 2013. The 26 year old elementary school teacher was last seen with friends on Friday night at a bar, Parlay’s, in the Lakeview section of New Orleans. Employees say she’d just finished a night of heavy drinking with several friends. Then she and a male acquaintance walked out and sat inside her car.

New Orleans police and family members are frantically searching for an elementary school teacher who has been missing since last Saturday.
Twenty-six-year-old Terrilynn Monnette was last seen with friends at a bar in the Lakeview section of the Crescent City last Friday evening. She left the bar around 4 o’clock Saturday morning with a male acquaintance, reported ABC’s New Orleans affiliate WGNO, telling her friends that she was going to take a nap in her car before driving home because she’d had a few drinks.
The bar’s general manager told WGNO that the two talked in the parking lot “for a little while,” but the bar’s video surveillance showed they left in separate cars. “He went one way, she went the other,” the bar manager said.
An eyewitness has told police that he saw the missing teacher with an unidentified man in the bar’s parking lot, according to information on the missing person’s flyer that Monnette’s family has been distributing.
Police detectives are searching for Monnette’s car — a three-door black Louisiana-registered Honda Accord with license plate number WUN494, according to the missing person’s flyer.

Monnette was last seen, in her 2012 Honda Accord, with license plate number WUN494.
UPDATE I: Volunteers search for missing N.O. teacher.
On Thursday morning, she and 50 to 60 other volunteers slowly walked through City Park banging sticks in bushes and searching through shrubs, hoping to find some sign of Monette, who has been missing since Saturday. The sheer size of City Park made finding that much-needed clue unlikely, but Enclade was adamant that she still believes that her daughter will return to her safely.
“I really believe that she’s OK,” Enclade said with a firm nod of her head, as others searched the high grass near the City Park driving range behind her. “I’m very hopeful.”
A foot search is under way for the missing schoolteacher who was last seen outside of a Lakeview bar early Saturday morning. Friends, family and co-workers of 26-year-old Terrilynn Monette gathered at Parlay’s bar in the 800 block of Harrison Avenue at 7:30 a.m. Thursday (March 7) to help look for the missing California native.
The group, which at 9 a.m. consisted of several dozen people, including concerned citizens who had never met Monette, gathered in the parking lot across the street from the bar and mapped out a search grid on an easel.

Body in Clark Fork River in Montana Could be Missing Anaconda Woman, 41 Year Old Tammy Salle … Last Seen December 23, 2012
41 year old Tammy Salle was last seen on December 23, 2012 and was reported missing three days later on December 26. Police in western Montana have located a decomposed body found in the Clark Fork River south of Deer Lodge, MT that has tattoos matching those of a missing Anaconda woman. However, the body has yet to be positively ID’d as Tammy Salle. The body found Saturday is being sent to the state crime lab in Missoula. After Tammy Salle was reported missing on December 26, a sheriff’s deputy found an abandoned 2008 Grand Prix on December 28, which she reportedly had been driving, on a frontage road near the Racetrack interchange, south of Deer Lodge near Interstate 90. The vehicle was owned by her boyfriend John Goldberg. Before police could question him, on December 29, authorities found Goldberg dead in his 2010 GMC pickup truck parked at a truck stop west of Missoula, apparently of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He left a suicide note, but contained no reference of Tammy Salle’s whereabouts.
Missing Tammy Salle – Anaconda Police
A woman’s decomposed body found Saturday in the Clark Fork River south of Deer Lodge has tattoos that match those of Tammy Salle, who has been missing since late December, Anaconda Chief of Police Tim Barkell said.
The chief said a fisherman reported seeing a body hung up in a shallow area in the middle of the river, along Interstate 90, about 10 miles south of Deer Lodge, near Galen.
The call came in at 2:42 p.m. Saturday, he said.
The chief said authorities could not confirm that the body is that of Tammy Salle. The remains will be sent to the state crime lab in Missoula for that to be determined.
However, though the body had decomposed, Barkell said tattoos could be identified, and that they matched those of Salle.
Barkell said investigators suspect the body, which is intact, was dumped upstream and snagged on the shallow area.
