Missing man's story gets national attention

On Sunday, a national television show profiled the story of a missing Encinitas man who disappeared more than two-and-a-half years ago.

Then 29-year-old Cameron Remmer was last seen on Oct. 6, 2011, while in San Francisco on business. His sister says he was staying at the Fairmont Hotel after purchasing medicinal marijuana. His family said he was bipolar, had psychosis and was off his prescribed medication when he vanished.

Remmer’s sister Chelsea Gladden sat down with 10News on Sunday, ahead of Investigation Discovery's “Last Seen Alive.”

“He was the kind of guy that called each one of us in the family every single day, if not a couple times a day,” Gladden said.

The episode was shot in January and will be aired a few more times in the weeks ahead.  She says they are optimistic that just one person that has seen him will come forward.

 “I'm going to be really hopeful when it’s airing that someone, somewhere, sees it and recognizes him and can give us some sort of information,” she added.

Another local man, 20-year-old Crishtian Hughes of Mission Valley, has also been missing from San Francisco since February 2013, although he is not featured in this episode. His mother has told 10News in previous interviews that he went up for a quick visit with friends and never returned.

He is the fifth man to go missing in San Francisco between May 2010 and February 2013.
