Police also said that Camp was last seen in Fontana on Thursday morning before he was reported missing.

Authorities also said that the former VJ was recently in Riverside, possibly staying as a transient frequenting motels throughout the Inland Empire.

The Riverside police said in a statement that there is no indication of anything suspicious related to the missing Camp other than his ceased contact with his family and friends.

Camp became a popular MTV VJ in the late 90s and early 2000s and also hosted several shows. His first break came when he won MTV’s Wanna Be a VJ contest in 1998.

He also tried a career as a recording artist during his time with the network. After some time, he faded from the limelight.
