Former MTV star Jesse Camp is missing, according to the Riverside Police Department in California.

Camp, who won the "Wanna Be a VJ" contest in 1998, was reported missing late last week by his sister, police said Monday night in an official media release.

The 38-year-old Camp, whose birth name is Josiah, is "possibly transient" and was staying in local motels in the area, police added.

"Family members who he routinely keeps in contact with had not heard from him for about a week. During their inquiries into his possible whereabouts, they learned Jesse was recently in the city of Riverside, but is also known to frequent the Inland Empire region," police said.

The statement continued, "There does not appear to be anything suspicious at this time regarding Jesse being missing other than his ceased contact with family and friends."
