The rescue of teen Sarah Dunsey in Los Angeles a month after she disappeared from a Las Vegas casino brings renewed hope for the families of women missing in southern California. The FBI found Dunsey with two men in Venice, California, over the weekend. Investigators have asked the Dunsey family not to share details of the case while they complete the investigation into what happened to the 17 year old.
Sarah’s story gained national attention when her parents posted an emotional video online pleading for help in finding their child. But Saturday her mother was able to posted this message on Facebook: “I prayed and prayed that you would come. and you came.”
The mother of Elaine Park fears her daughter might have been kidnapped or murdered. The 20-year-old Glendale, California, woman disappeared after a movie date with a boyfriend in Calabasas, California on January 28. Her 2015 Honda Civic was found parked along the beach in Malibu three days later. Her wallet, keys and cell phone were inside the car, which was apparently still running when abandoned.
The boyfriend said Elaine left his home suddenly that Saturday morning after awakening with a panic attack. Elaine’s mom questions a gap in home security video showing her daughter leaving the boyfriend’s house at 6 o’clock in the morning, but her car is not seen on video driving out of the community gate until more than an hour later.
