He was set to give five interviews, and then he just vanished.

Jesus Campos has been called a hero by many after leading police to Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock's hotel room after he opened fire on a country concert, killing 58 people and wounding over 500.

After taking a gunshot wound to the leg, the Mandalay Bay security guard directed officers to the shooter's location and stayed behind to evacuate hotel guests. 

But now it seems the hero is missing. 

The president of the Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America union, David Hickey, reported October 16th that it had been four days since he last saw Campos. They were coordinating a series of interviews together about the Oct. 1 massacre in Las Vegas, which included appearances on CNN, CBS, and NBC.

At some point during a meeting with MGM representatives — inside the suite Campos was staying in at a nearby hotel — he left and never came back.

Hickey said he learned from another union member who was in the meeting that Campos was taken to Quick Care health clinic.

He hasn't heard anything about his whereabouts since. 

A spokesperson for the UMC Quick Care said they had "heard nothing" about Campos attending one of their facilities. 

"Right now I'm just concerned where my member is, and what his condition is," Hickey said. "It's highly unusual. I'm hoping everything is OK with him and I'm sure MGM or the union will let (media) know when we hear something."

Hickey said it was Campos who wanted to go public and tell his story so he could move on. 

"The last four days [before he vanished] his state of mind was getting better, he was looking forward to telling his story and moving on with his life. The last day he seemed fine,” he told CrimeOnline.

A man was hired to guard Campos' house to prevent news media from entering the property, but it's not clear who hired him to be there. 

One of his neighbors, Jamie Ruano, said Campos was a private person. 

"He's a hero,” Ruano said, “and nobody knows where he is.”

At this time, Campos has not officially been reported as a missing person.
