Chicago's Most Wanted Dr. Gautam Gupta

Posted:


After years of claiming to be able to help make your waist line disappear, now Dr. Gautam Gupta himself has disappeared. In June, federal prosecutors charged him with health care and mail fraud. He's been on the run since then.

They claim Gupta submitted insurance and Medicaid claims for procedures that were either unnecessary or never performed. As a result, prosecutors say Gupta's business, The Nutrition Clinic, was paid nearly $25 million in patient claims over the last ten years. Before he disappeared, agents say the government had planned to meet with Gupta and his attorney to discuss potential charges.

Gupta's last known home address is in Rockford but agents did not find him there when they tried to arrest him. They believe he left the area and may have gone to California or he may have fled the country. Agents are conducting an international search for Gupta since he was born in India but is also a naturalized us citizen.

Here is a detailed description of what agents say Gupta looks like. He is described as an Asian male of Indian descent, 57 years old, 5' 5", 161 pounds, brown eyes and has black hair with some grey in it.

If you see him, call police.

If you have any information about this case, call the Chicago FBI Bureau at (312) 421-6700.
