Richard "Box" Bachschmidt, former radio personality for 105.5 The Bridge and recent entrepreneur of podcast "Box in the Morning," has been reported missing. 

He was last seen Tuesday at his home on James Island. He told his roommate he would "be right back" and then left in his blue Honda Element and did not return, according to a spokeswoman for Bachschmidt's family. 

Since then, he has missed recording his podcast as well as other professional engagements. 

A missing persons report has been filed, and anyone with information on 42-year-old Bachschmidt's whereabouts is asked to call the Charleston County Sheriff's Office at 843-202-1700.

He has tattoos on his arms and is known to wear baseball hats and glasses. He was last seen wearing a black T-shirt, jeans and blue checkered Vans.

According to friend and local musician Tyler Boone, Bachschmidt hasn't been answering his phone, which has been on and off, with it going straight to voicemail as of the last 24 hours.

When Boone last saw Bachschmidt, he says he "wasn't in the best spirit." Boone adds that Bachschmidt has been open about his struggle with depression, but that this behavior is not like him.
