The Uber driver’s mother, Janet, said earlier that phone records indicated that her son — or someone using her son’s phone — made a call to 911 at 2:32 p.m. on Feb. 12. She said whoever made the call didn’t say anything and hung up.

The phone was later traced to Venice Boulevard and Burlington Avenue, but is no longer active, according to Fox 11.

Janet said it’s unlike her son to disappear and not contact anyone.

“We’re really getting concerned now,” friend Kevin Young told KCBS-TV. “Right now a week has gone by.”

Janet added that Thiede was living with two roommates in Los Angeles and was a driver for Uber and Lyft to earn extra money.
