California Joshua Thiede has been missing for over a week and his family is concerned for his safety.
The 29-year-old was last seen at 11:30 a.m. on Feb. 11 in downtown Los Angeles, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. His family hasn’t heard from him since.
“This doesn’t feel right,” said Yokeena Jamar, Thiede’s friend, to ABC station KABC in Los Angeles. “Honestly, it didn’t really feel real to me until after the news stations started calling.”
— LAPD HQ (@LAPDHQ) February 20, 2018Thiede was an Uber and Lyft driver, according to police. He drove a 2014 black Nissan Altima with license plate No. 7CSD450, police said.
Police describe Thiede as white with brown hair, blue eyes, 6 feet tall and weighing around 170 pounds.
Janet Thiede, his mother, said on Twitter that her son, or someone using his phone, called 911 on Feb. 12 and then hung up.
“The 911 phone call was made on Monday at 2:30 p.m. We’re not sure why he made that phone call,” Jamar told KABC. “There was no transcript of that phone call because they did not record it. It was a hang-up call.”
Thiede was using Uber and Lyft to make money while preparing to start his own footwear line to benefit homelessness, according to KABC. Read more: http://abcn.ws/2GrwvAM
