    Missing Glendale woman's car found parked on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu

    [​IMG]

    Police are seeking the public’s help in finding a 20-year-old Glendale woman who has been reported missing since Monday.

    Elaine Park was last seen the morning of Jan. 28, and her family subsequently reported her missing. Her car was found sometime on Feb. 2 parked along Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, according to Glendale Police Sgt. Robert William.

    “Elaine’s personal property was found in the vehicle along with the keys,” he said.

    Glendale Police Department spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot said police then conducted a search of the coastline and of the car. Authorities were unable to locate Park, and no evidence of foul play was found in her vehicle, she said.

    Dread grows in hunt for missing Glendale woman: Abandoned car in Malibu

    The three-day search for a missing 20-year-old Glendale woman ended Saturday with no sign of her.

    The search began about 7 a.m. and concluded at noon, according to Glendale police Sgt. Robert William.

    “At this time detectives will be re-focusing on family and friends,” said William, adding that there will not be another search effort Sunday.

    Elaine Park was reported missing on Monday after she failed to return home following a date last Saturday night with her boyfriend, he said. On Thursday, Park’s car was found along Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu with her keys, cellphone and other personal belongings inside.

    A search and rescue team and detectives have been searching for her, utilizing four blood hounds,” William said. He said the search took place Saturday “along the Pacific Coast Highway, near Corral Canyon and near the Malibu Motorhome park.”

    Deputies found Park’s 2015 Honda Civic parked near Corral Canyon Road on Thursday, ABC7 reported.

    Park’s status has been changed from voluntarily to “critical missing,” William said.

    “We are very concerned for her well being,” he said.

    Investigators questioned Park’s boyfriend, who has been “completely cooperative,” William said.

    Police asked for the public’s help Sunday to find a 20-year-old Glendale woman who’s been missing for nearly seven days.

    Police ended a three-day, intensive ground search for the woman on Saturday after Park’s car was found Thursday along Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu with her keys, cellphone and other personal belongings inside.

    “At this time detectives will be re-focusing on family and friends,’ said William.

    Fate of Missing Glendale Woman Mystifies Mother, Friends, Police

    It is almost unimaginable: the anguish of a mother whose daughter has disappeared, with police investigators seemingly stymied in determining what became of her.

    "I gotta do something as a mom," said the mother of Elaine Park, the Glendale 20-year-old who disappeared January 28.

    Park's car was found Feb. 2 in Malibu, parked on the shoulder of Pacific Coast Highway at Corral Beach -- her keys, cellphone, make-up and money inside -- but no sign of her. Law enforcement brought in search and rescue teams and a bloodhound, but without success.

    So it was that Park's mother -- who asked her first name not be used-- returned Thursday to Corral Beach armed with flyers to post. She reached out to visitors, nearby residents and shopkeepers -- not so much out of fear police had missed something, but more out of sense of personal duty, that with enough effort she could find someone who could help unravel the dreadful mystery.

    Investigators have learned that after Elaine left her mother's home on that last Friday in January, she met with a former boyfriend and went to his family's Calabasas compound, which has both a main house and a guest house.

    Before dawn the next morning, security camera video obtained by police shows Park left the property "on her own," said Glendale Police Sgt. Robert William.

    Mother of Elaine Park seeks answers weeks after daughter went missing

    Susan Park wants just one thing — to find her daughter, a 20-year-old Glendale resident who was reported missing late last month.

    A reward of $5,000 was offered last week from family members for information leading to finding Elaine Park, who was last seen Jan. 28 at the Calabasas residence of her on-and-off boyfriend.


    What bothers Susan Park is the roughly hour of video footage on Jan. 28 from 6:05 a.m. to 7:14 a.m. — when Elaine Park’s vehicle is leaving her boyfriend’s home in the 2600 block of Delphine Lane Calabasas but before she is seen leaving through a community gate. That time period is unaccounted for, Susan Park said.

    She said she received two DVD’s with private footage and community footage that omits the hour.

    “It was almost pitch dark,” Susan Park said, when her daughter’s car leaves the community gate at 7:14 a.m. — roughly 69 minutes after she drove away from her boyfriend’s house. “You can’t really see if it’s her as the vehicle is driving out. You clearly see a license plate number.”

    Susan Park said she would like to see not just the missing footage but all of the footage from Jan. 28 to Feb. 2 when the vehicle was located. Sometime this week she wants to gather all her notes, summarize them and bring them to the attention of Glendale Police Department Chief Robert Castro to further investigate the boyfriend.

    “I don’t want to jeopardize the case and get them upset,” Susan Park said. “I’m not trying to get them into trouble but I feel they ruled him out too quickly. They didn’t search the (boyfriend’s) main house; they didn’t take the K-9 to go through the gated community or even inside the backyard or whatever. They didn’t do that ... it’s just too quick.”

    Mother Appeals for Continued Help in Search for Missing California Daughter Elaine Park

    Susan Park thought that maybe one day she'd see her spunky and outgoing daughter Elaine on television.

    She just never imagined it would be under these circumstances.

    "You would never think you'd see her child's photo on television showing they are missing," Susan told Dateline. "Sometimes I just sit and stare at the wall, because I feel so helpless."

    Elaine, 20, has been missing for more than three weeks. The last time anyone saw her was in the early-morning hours of Saturday, January 28, 2017. On Friday, she had driven to her on-again, off-again boyfriend family's home in Calabasas.

    The two reportedly then took an Uber to the movies, returning to his house later that night.

    Elaine's mother says the young man told her that Elaine had suffered some type of panic attack around 4:00 a.m. the next morning and, despite his efforts to have her stay, Elaine drove off in her car.

    Surveillance images from the property show Elaine's car leave the home, although it isn't 100% clear who is driving.

    Susan describes her daughter as private, so when she didn't come home Saturday, she wasn't immediately alarmed. However, when Elaine failed to answer calls and texts, something the two had an agreement about, Susan started to worry.


    "It is suspicious in the way that we found her car, her cellphone and things, in the manner we did," Sgt. Robert William, of the Glendale Police Department, told Dateline. "We can't rule foul play in or out because, plain and simple, we don't have any evidence to do so."

    Internet sleuths have latched onto the case. Many have begun asking questions regarding Elaine's on-again, off-again boyfriend, the son of a prominent Hollywood businessman.

    The young man is not considered a suspect in Elaine's disappearance, authorities said. "The boyfriend has actually been the most cooperative in the investigation," Sgt. Williams said. "We can see she left on her own and he stayed at his residence that night."

    Police: All leads ‘exhausted’ in search for missing Glendale woman Elaine Park

    Authorities said on Tuesday they have exhausted all leads in the case of Elaine Park, the missing 20-year-old Glendale woman last seen on Jan. 28, and are looking for help.

    “So far, every lead that we’ve had and every physical search we’ve conducted, we’ve exhausted and we haven’t had any luck in terms of the leads that we’ve gotten from tips,” said Glendale Police Department Sgt. Robert William on Tuesday at a news conference, where Glendale police, the Korean American Federation of Los Angeles and deputies from the Malibu/Lost Hills Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Station called for help in finding Park.

    “We’re asking for anyone that knows Elaine, or anyone that knows anything about the disappearance to come forward,” William said.


    “Up to this point there hasn’t been any evidence or suspicion to dig into him,” William said. “He’s been cooperative. He’s given us more information than anyone else has to date. The family has been very cooperative to give us information to their security camera. They’ve been supportive with our investigation. Could that change later? Sure. But that’s only if we get some sort of information or some sort of lead to take us there.”

    The case has spurred the Korean American Federation of L.A. into action.

    “We need the public and our community to come forward with any information you may have regarding Elaine Park’s disappearance,” said Korean American Federation of L.A. Vice President Emile Mack at the news conference, which was held in Los Angeles at the federation’s headquarters.

    Susan Park, Elaine’s mother, said she’s appreciative of the support she’s received from the Korean American Association of L.A. and others, but she is worried about her daughter.

    “I think it’s too late now,” Park said after the news conference. “I feel like because it’s the 33rd day I feel like we’ve wasted time. The only thing left is to just spread the word and do an on-foot search around the last person who saw her, which is in Calabasas and the hiking area of Corral Canyon.”

    'There's definitely foul play': Mother of missing La Crescenta woman presses police to do more

    Susan Park said on Tuesday that Glendale police have not done enough to find her 20-year-old daughter, Elaine, who has been missing since Jan. 28.

    The La Crescenta woman's comments came following a press conference held by the Korean American Federation of Los Angeles.

    A $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to Elaine Park's location and a GFM page called "Help Find Elaine Park" has received over $12,000. The money was used by Susan Park to hire a private investigator, who, she said, has "revealed quite a bit of information," but declined to say what it entailed.

    "There's definitely foul play. I feel that there's foul play involved," Susan Park said.

    Sheriff’s drone helps in Malibu search for missing Glendale woman Elaine Park

    Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials used a newly acquired unmanned aircraft, or drone, Sunday to help search for a missing Glendale woman above the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu where her car was found last month, authorities said.

    The Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station coordinated a large-scale search — of which the use of the unmanned aerial system was a part — in an effort to help locate Park or any possible clues since her car was found in their jurisdiction, authorities said. However, officials said they turned up empty-handed.

    “Although the area has been searched numerous times, there are some very rugged areas we wanted to pay attention to,” said Capt. Jack Ewell of the Sheriff Department’s Special Enforcement Bureau about the use of the unmanned aircraft system. “We were able to use it to look into some of those very dangerous places we couldn’t get to in the past. Unfortunately, we did not locate the missing person or any kind of investigative clues.”

    'We are absolutely puzzled': Reward offered in case of missing woman

    For Susan Park, the last six months have been torture.

    Her daughter Elaine, 20, has been missing since Jan. 28, when she was last seen leaving her ex-boyfriend’s house in Calabasas.

    On Tuesday, Park’s mother, friends and private investigator Jayden Brant held a news conference to announce a $250,000 cash reward for information leading to the young woman’s whereabouts.

    In order to collect the reward, tips must be submitted by Sept. 15. Brandt said the stipulation was made by the people who put up the money for the reward.

    The public can call (800) 551-3080 or go online to elainepark.tips to submit any information on her whereabouts.


    Brant said new leads have surfaced in the case but declined to go into detail because the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and the Glendale Police Department are still investigating.

    “We firmly believe Park didn’t commit suicide,” Brant said, adding that the case is classified as that of an involuntary missing person.

    In March, the Glendale Police Department cleared Elaine Park’s ex-boyfriend of any suspicion in her disappearance.

    In an interview Tuesday, Glendale Police Sgt. Robert William said there was no sign of a struggle where the young woman’s car had been found. He said that Brant had offered Glendale detectives several theories on what may have happened, declining to divulge what those theories were, but saying that investigators had followed up on them.

    The investigation has involved searches in the Santa Monica Mountains and the Angeles National Forest. William said that divers, bloodhounds and drones have all been employed in the case but have failed to turn up any signs of the woman.

    “We are absolutely puzzled,” he said.

    Brant and others appealed to the public Tuesday to provide tips and any video footage or photographs taken between Jan. 28 and Feb. 2 of a specific stretch of Pacific Coast Highway between Coral Canyon and the Malibu Seafood Restaurant, where Park’s car was found.

    Elaine Park went missing in Calabasas 8 months ago. Her mother isn’t giving up

    Elaine Park’s mother Susan is disappointed and exhausted.

    The $500,000 reward for her daughter, the missing La Crescenta resident who turned 21 on Sunday, expired and Susan Park is trying to figure out her next move.

    “I don’t know what else to do,” the mother said on Friday in a phone interview. “People are saying the money will have people talk. But that didn’t happen.”


    Glendale Police Sgt. Robert William said on Friday no new tips were generated from the reward.

    “The case will remain open until there’s a resolution,” William said. “With missing person reports, we don’t close them until they’re found one way or another. It remains open and there are no leads to investigate.”

    Elaine has been missing for almost a year, but her mother will not give up hope. The last time anyone saw the 20-year-old was in the early-morning hours of Saturday, January 28, 2017. Elaine had driven to her on-again, off-again boyfriend’s family’s home in Calabasas the previous evening. Elaine’s mother says the young man told her that Elaine had suffered some type of panic attack around 4:00 a.m. the next morning. He said despite his efforts to have her stay, Elaine drove off in her car. Surveillance images from the property show Elaine’s car leave the home, although authorities aren’t certain who is driving. Three days later, Elaine’s 2015 Honda Accord was spotted parked on the shoulder of Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. The vehicle was unlocked, the key still in the ignition. Authorities found Elaine’s cell phone and other personal belongings inside the car. Anyone with information regarding her case is urged to contact the Glendale Police Department at (818) 548-4911.

    New reward offered to find Elaine Park, La Crescenta woman missing since January

    Family members of Elaine Park, the missing 21-year-old La Crescenta resident who was last seen on Jan. 28 in Calabasas, have created a new reward to help find her.

    Her mother Susan is trying to find photos that show — on Jan. 28 or Jan. 29 — the area of Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. The area is where Elaine’s charcoal gray 2015 Honda Civic was parked and could hopefully lead to Elaine.

    “I am just so confused and distraught as to why there’s no concrete tips even with the $500,000 reward (offered previously),” Susan Park said in a statement on Friday. “Every news story about finding a woman’s body, I keep imagining that moment of her last breath … how I think that she may have called out for me and saying ‘I love you mom.’

    “Then there are some times I think she is still alive waiting for me to rescue her. This is where my tortuous mindset kicks in … not knowing what happened to her.”

    A reward of $1,000 is being offered for a Jan. 28 photograph or $250 for Jan. 29. If any of those photos provide direct evidence of what happened to Elaine, the individual who first supplied the photograph will receive $50,000.

    Additionally, photos from Jan. 30, Feb. 1 and Feb. 2 would also be appreciated, family members said.

    Private investigator Jayden Brant, who announced the reward in a release, said he is trying to establish a better timeline of when Elaine’s vehicle was on Pacific Coast Highway just south of Corral Canyon Road.

    Family offers reward for missing daughter

    The family of Elaine Park, the 20-year-old La Crescenta woman who went missing last January, is offering a reward of up to $50,000 to anyone who has photographs that can help determine where she might have gone.

    Park was last seen at 6:05 a.m. Jan. 28, 2017, leaving the home of her ex-boyfriend in Calabasas. Her charcoal gray Honda Civic was found five days later, Feb. 2, in Malibu with the doors unlocked and the keys still in the ignition. It was parked on the ocean side of the street, just south of Corral Canyon Road. Inside were Park’s backpack, cellphone, computer and cash.

    Park’s family is looking for photos of the stretch of PCH where the car was found. They’re offering $1,000 for photos of the road on Jan. 28 and $250 for photos on Jan. 29.

    If any pictures or video is turned in that provides direct evidence of what happened to Park, the individual will receive $50,000.

    Park’s mother, Susan, issued a statement asking for help locating her daughter: “It’s been a long, devastating 10 months. I live day to day and each day I am struggling to preserve hope and keep moving forward in finding my daughter, Elaine. I’m not sure that I’m OK, don’t even think I’m fine. I’m empty on the inside, but not inside my mind. I can’t stop thinking, what more can I do?

    1-year anniversary of La Crescenta woman’s disappearance marked with renewed call for information

    A new $140,000 reward is being offered for information in the case of a missing 21-year-old La Crescenta woman who disappeared last year.

    The reward was announced Sunday on the one-year anniversary of Elaine Park's disappearance. Jayden Brant, a private investigator hired by Park's family, said the money will hopefully encourage someone to step forward with information that will lead to her whereabouts.

    A previous reward of $500,000 was offered in September but failed to generate any concrete leads. That reward expired on Sept. 24.

    "Relationships change, circumstances change, maybe now is the time for them to come forward," Brant said. "If somebody knows something, why not come forward today and not wait six months from now?"

    While there have been no major developments in the investigation, the case does remain active with the Glendale Police Department. Sgt. Dan Suttles, a spokesman for the department, said detectives have been searching for new leads in Park's disappearance.

    "Leads have slowed down, but we do follow every one that comes in," he said.
