The parents of Eric Kohler — the movie producer who went missing last week — told media on Wednesday that it’s not like their son to just disappear.

Appearing on ABC News, Kohler’s mother, Sheryi Kohler, said, “He would never just throw it away.”

“He works so hard … he’s ambitious,” she added.

Said Kohler’s father Tony, “He loves his job, he loves his friends.”

Kohler’s mother called her son’s disappearance “a living nightmare.”

According to the Los Angeles Police Department, Kohler, 27, was last seen on Nov. 24 around 4 p.m. on the 1700 block of El Segundo Boulevard in Gardena, California.

Phone records and surveillance video show that Kohler went to a Food 4 Less parking lot, but soon after that his phone appears to have been turned off. There has been no activity in his bank or credit card accounts since then.

Kohler has produced visual effects for films such as “The Avengers,” “San Andreas” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”
