Deputies Friday served a search warrant in the Canoga Park area in connection with the May 1 disappearance of 20th Century Fox executive and former UCLA basketball player Gavin Smith.
The warrant was served in the 8600 block of Santa Susana Place, Steve Whitmore of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said.
"Information led us to this location in relation to the investigation into this missing-persons case," Whitmore said. "This is an ongoing investigation."
On Tuesday, Smith's family announced a $20,000 reward for information leading to him.
The 57-year-old Smith last was seen May 1 in the Ventura County community of Oak Park. He was driving a 2000 black Mercedes-Benz 420 E with tinted windows, a roof rack and California license 6EKT044.
Smith is white, about 6 feet 6 inches tall and has graying blond hair and green eyes.
Smith has a goatee, a roughly 4-inch scar on his right inner wrist and a 5-inch scar on one of his calves, according to the sheriff's detectives.
