Mandalay Bay Las Vegas Security Guard Who Was Shot Has Vanished
The Mandalay Bay security guard who disappeared last week moments before he was scheduled to break his silence in television interviews has not been heard from since he went to a walk-in health clinic, his union president said, reports FOX News.
David Hickey of the Security, Police, and Fire Professionals of America (SPFPA) told reporters Friday that he got a text the night before saying
Jesus Campos was taken to a UMC Quick Care facility, though he did not specify where or whom the text came from.
A spokesperson at the UMC Quick Care, which has eight locations throughout the Las Vegas area, told Fox News on Monday that they had "heard nothing" about Campos visiting them.
Multiple requests from Fox News for SPFPA to comment on the matter were not returned Monday.
Hickey said he was meeting with MGM officials Thursday afternoon in the hours before Campos’ scheduled television appearances, including one with Fox News.
But when the meeting ended, Campos had fled.
"For the past four days he's been preparing ... we had a meeting with MGM officials, and after that meeting was over, we talked about the interviews, we went to a private area, and when we came out, Mr. Campos was gone," Hickey told reporters, according to Fox 5 Las Vegas.
Hickey has said that before he vanished, Campus was looking forward to telling his side of the story.
"Right now I'm just concerned where my member is, and what his condition is. It's highly unusual,” Hickey said Friday. “I'm hoping everything is OK with him and I'm sure MGM or the union will let (media) know when we hear something," he said.

Late Tuesday, the TV talk show host Ellen DeGeneres tweeted that Campos and Mandalay Bay maintenance worker Steve Schuck would appear on her show Wednesday. Schuck was caught in the initial hallway gunfire of shooter Stephen Paddock and helped direct police to Paddock’s room.
