Wife Of Missing Movie Executive Speaks Out

Wife Of Missing Movie Executive Speaks Out

A heartbroken wife is speaking out to INSIDE EDITION about her missing husband.  

Movie executive Gavin Smith simply vanished without a trace over five months ago. He worked at 20th Century Fox, distributing movie blockbusters like Star Wars and Avatar.

Now his wife, Lisa, said her handsome 6’6” husband had a shocking secret life of extramarital affairs, money woes and drug addiction.   

Lisa told INSIDE EDITION’s Jim Moret, “Do I feel betrayed? Of course, I loved him dearly.”

Gavin Smith was an executive with the Fox movie studios in Los Angeles for nearly two decades. He was last seen on May 1st when he left a friend's home behind the wheel of his black Mercedes in the middle of the night. He never came back.

Right after Gavin’s disappearance, his three sons made an urgent plea to America for help in finding their dad.

His son Dylan said, “Life's not the same without you and I don't know what I’m going to do without you in my life.”

Now his wife Lisa told Moret she can finally come out with what she believes is the truth about her husband's double life, something she was not comfortable talking about when he first disppeared.

Moret asked, “Do you believe your husband was murdered?”

Lisa said, “Yes, I still believe it. I don't picture him walking in and saying 'I’m sorry I just needed a breather.' It is just not going to happen, it is just not who he was. I am prepared, and the children are prepared for the worst.”

She now says that her 57-year-old husband had at least two affairs. She wouldn't speculate whether she thinks those affairs or drug problems had anything to do with the mystery.

Moret asked, “Why didn't you come out sooner with this revelation?”

“I was quiet out of respect to my family and respect for the privacy of the investigation,” said Lisa.  

In our interview, Lisa wore bracelets her husband gave her in happier days, before he began his secret life, and disappeared off the face of the Earth.

Moret asked, “If you could say anything to him, what would it be?”

“I wish he hadn't gotten in that car and left that night. He didn't intend to hurt us. I pray he's at peace,” said Lisa.
