Stephen Ivans, FBI Agent, Goes Missing With Gun in Verdugo Mountains
Authorities fear he's suicidal.
What's more he's an avid hiker who knows the area well.
According to a statement from the Burbank police, he was reported missing Friday morning:
... The 35-year-old male is despondent and possibly suicidal. Information indicates he left his residence on foot and may be in the area of the Verdugo Mountains.
There is a handgun unaccounted for from inside his residence. There is no indication he is or has been involved in any criminal activity. The police department is concerned for his well-being.
Ivans left on foot from his Burbank home in the 1700 block of Scott Road, according to cops.
He's described as 6 feet, 160 pounds, with brown eyes and receding brown hair. He wears glasses. Ivans is a former LAPD officer.
Associated Press reported that as many as 100 FBI agents, 40 sheriff's deputies and a dozen area cops looked for him in the rugged terrain of the Verdugos on Sunday to no avail.
