Media Insists Las Vegas Security Guard Isn’t Missing but They Don’t Know Where He Is

The Las Vegas security guard disappeared when he was supposed to give an interview. Now we’re told there’s nothing wrong.

The Las Vegas security guard, Jesus Campos, has not vanished but he isn’t here either. In fact, the media, which confidently tells us not to worry, does not seems to have laid eyes on him. They are just relying on the word of his employer.

I assume they are right and Campos will show up eventually and tell what he knows.

By all accounts, Jesus Campos has not disappeared.

The 25-year-old keeps dodging reporter interviews. Signs outside his east valley home still read, “NO TRESPASSING” and “NO MEDIA ON PROPERTY.”

But the Mandalay Bay security guard who a gunman shot in the leg Oct. 1 before opening fire on a nearby country music festival crowd continues to stay in contact with his employer, and police don’t consider him missing.

“Jesus Campos wants to tell his story at a time and place of his choosing,” MGM Resorts International, which owns and operates Mandalay Bay, said in an email to the Las Vegas Review-Journal early Tuesday. “He’s asked that everyone respect his request for privacy. We could not be more proud of Jesus.”

The question of his location first arose Thursday, when Campos failed to show up to five television interviews scheduled by the International Union, Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America.

His neighbors haven’t seen him in a few days. No “Jesus Campos” is registered as a guest at any MGM properties on the Strip. And while calls to his listed telephone numbers continue to go unanswered, Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Larry Hadfield said Campos is “fully cooperating with the investigation.”
