The mother of 20-year-old Elaine Park, who has been missing since January, is asking the public for help in finding her daughter in Glendale, California by offering a “time-limited” reward of $250,000.
“It’s completely (a) mystery, unimaginable. How can someone just disappear without a trace?” Park’s mother, Susan, said at a news conference held in Los Angeles on Tuesday, KTLA 5 reported.
“Sometimes it’s hard to believe this has really happened. I cannot believe this. Elaine, I can’t imagine what happened to you and I’m devastated that I wasn’t there the moment you needed me the most,” said Susan Park. “I am pleading for the public’s help. All we want to do is find Elaine, nothing else. I will never give up hope. I pray that someone will come forward and bring my daughter home.”
Park was last seen leaving her ex-boyfriend’s house on Delphine Lane in Calabasas, California on January 28. Two days later, the family officially filed a missing persons report.
Authorities found Park’s car along the Pacific Coast Highway near Corral Canyon on February 2, five days after she went missing, according to the GoFundMe page that was set up for the search. Her personal belongings were found inside the vehicle including her keys, purse, cash, laptop, makeup and phone.
Unfortunately, the authorities’ search around the Malibu area and beach did not yield any leads that could help them locate Park.
The Glendale police are also asking for the public’s help in locating Park, who is described as thin, 5 feet 6 inches tall, 125 pounds, long brown hair with blond tips and brown eyes. She is also known for wearing heavy makeup on her face and mascara.
People who may have information on where to find Park can reach out to Glendale Police at (818) 548-4911 and/or (818) 571-2735 or contact the Facebook page that was set up by family friend, Rosemarie Wheeler.
