Bushwick fashion designer Jay Ott missing since Saturday
Jay Ott, a 31-year-old fashion designer who lives in the McKibbin Lofts, was last seen on video surveillance footage entering his apartment at around 10 p.m. on Saturday night. His friends say they’ve had no contact with him since then, and have reported him missing; they have launched extensive search efforts, and are asking anyone with information to contact them or the 90th Precinct.
“He did not come into work on Monday, which is not very typical of him. That’s when we all started to get worried,” Beatrice Kim, who works with Ott at fashion investment firm The Dock Group, told us. “When we all started talking to one another, that’s when we realized no one had heard from him since Saturday evening, which is not usual at all.” – [Gothamist]
