AceShowbiz - Former MTV VJ Jesse Camp is reported missing. The Riverside Police Department confirms that they are currently investigating the disappearance of the winner of MTV's first "Wanna Be a VJ" contest in 1998 after his sister Marisha Camp "filed a report with our department last week on the 19th stating he was missing."

His sister reported his disappearance after he failed to respond to calls from herself and other family members, which, according to her, is unusual. While police "don’t see anything suspicious," police say he is still considered a missing person at this time.

Though Jesse does not live in Riverside, Officer Ryan Railsback of the Riverside Police Department tells PEOPLE that his sister "had been in contact with someone who had told her [Jesse] was in Riverside a week ago, and that he's been known to travel to the Inland Empire, and Riverside, from time to time." Marisha also told police that her brother "might have been depressed recently."

Marisha has taken to social media to spread the word about his disappearance and ask for people's help to find him. "If anyone has seen or heard from my brother since Saturday, please, please, please reach out to me or ask him to call home!! Thank you!!!!" she wrote on Instagram Stories on Saturday, July 21.
