Ordinarily this wouldn't be something I'd post. But it's just a little bit too weird to ignore, too.

ABC News:

PALM DESERT, Calif. (KABC) -- A Los Angeles executive with AIG Insurance Company has been reported missing following a company dinner in Palm Desert.

Omar Meza, 33, went missing Thursday night. Co-workers last saw him take an Uber to his hotel.

He was last seen on video in the lobby of the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa around 11 p.m. Thursday. He failed to show up for scheduled meetings on Friday.

Investigators from the Palm Desert Sheriff's Station found Meza's jacket and wallet on the hotel's golf course, but they don't expect foul play.

His wife says her husband was in a car accident in 2013 and suffers from memory loss. She thinks he has long-term damage and may not know where he is.

Search and rescue teams used bloodhounds to try and track Meza to no avail.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with any information on Meza's whereabouts was urged to contact the Palm Desert Sheriff's Station at (760) 836-1600.

Palm Desert isn't exactly somewhere people can safely disappear. Lots of wide open spaces and even in winter, it's on the warm side. This guy has been missing since Thursday and police don't suspect foul play? Bloodhounds couldn't track him?

Hopefully they will find him safe and sound and you all can tell me I'm just weirdly paranoid.
