Los Angeles man goes missing in Indian Wells

Friends, family, and investigators in the Coachella Valley are looking for 33-year-old Omar Meza from Los Angeles.

Authorities say coworkers last saw Meza in Indian Wells Thursday night, January 8. He has not returned phone calls and has not been seen by friends or family since.

Meza’s jacket and wallet were found on the JW Marriott Desert Springs property, where friends say he is staying while on business in the Coachella Valley.

Family members tell News Channel 3 and CBS Local 2 that bloodhounds may be used to trace his scent from the belongings that were found on the golf course. Riverside County Sheriffs Department Cpl. Roberto Martinez says using this search method is a strong possibility if it will advance efforts in locating Meza.

While his belongings were found at the resort in Palm Desert, authorities say friends last saw him in Indian Wells. Surveillance video from the JW Marriott Desert Springs shows him entering the hotel alone, but not leaving, family says.

The information on the flyer attached to this article was printed by the Meza family. The last-seen location may be incorrect. They describe Omar Meza to be 5’10”, 160 lbs, last seen wearing grey pants and a white shirt.

Anyone who has seen Meza, pictured above, is asked to call the Indian Wells police department at 1(800)950-2444.
