Divers with the Riverside County Sheriff's Department were searching Monday in a pond at a Palm Desert hotel where a missing man was staying.

A dive team was looking for Omar Arce Meza, 33, at the pond at JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort, sheriff's spokesman Deputy Armando Munoz said. Bloodhounds and a search-and-rescue team have also been used to search for the Los Angeles resident.

Meza was last seen about 11 p.m. Thursday at the hotel in the 74800 block of Country Club Drive in Palm Desert after arriving for a business trip. Meza often travels for work and visits Palm Desert every other month.

Meza, a vice president for AIG Financial Distributors, has not used his credit cards since that day, his wife, Diane Meza, told The Times.
