Jay Ott, a 31-year-old fashion designer who lives in the McKibbin Lofts in Bushwick, has been missing since Saturday. Friends and family say that they've had no contact with him since Saturday, and surveillance footage shows him entering his apartment around 10pm that evening.

Ott works at the fashion investment firm The Dock Group, and coworkers say they began to worry when he didn't show up to work on Monday. Missing signs, which have been posted throughout the city, describe Ott as 6'2", 175 pounds, blue eyes, brown eyes, and wears glasses. Anyone with any information can call Detective Thomas Pisano at the 90th Precinct at 718-963-5368. There's also an email address set up:

Update: WWD and The Cut have new information pertaining to where Ott was last seen.
