A little Labor Day relaxation may have turned tragic for a Natomas man who's now been missing for more than 24 hours.
Family and friends of Robert Gillette spent Tuesday night looking for him by the river near the Tower Bridge.
His son says dad had a few drinks Monday and texted that he was going to go bike riding and swimming alone near Discovery Park or Old Sacramento.
That's the last contact he's had with the 62-year-old.
"Very uncharacteristic of him because he's not like this. He takes care of my little 3-year-old son. He's very much ... a very responsible person, so that's why it's very alarming right now. That's why we're a little scared," said Gillette's son, Robert Blatz.
Blatz says after his dad's phone battery died at 2 p.m., it was charged and someone picked it up and then hung up several times around 8 p.m. Tuesday when family called.
He suspects the phone's been stolen.
If you know anything about where Gillette might be, you're asked to call Sacramento police.
