‘Around the clock’ search for Simi Valley mom after blood found in home
Los Angeles time-keeping experts have been investigating a mystery woman who has gone missing, according to police reports.
LAPD officer Matt Mancuso, who works with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, joined his colleagues Thursday night after detectives discovered the blood spots on their suspect’s bed at home in Simi Valley.
The woman’s car was found abandoned a few blocks away, the reports said.
The blood was reported at 7:40 p.m. Thursday, the reports said.
A medical examiner is scheduled to conduct an autopsy Friday morning, the reports said.
The woman was last seen at her home at 832 E. San Gabriel St. at about 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 10 and not seen since that time, LAPD Lt. Mark Rosen told KPCC Saturday morning.
Rosen and Capt. Jim Clark confirmed Saturday they have been working on this case for the better part of a year.
The woman’s car was found abandoned more than two blocks from her home in Simi Valley. Loved ones of the woman, who was believed to be in her 20s, gathered at the home in Simi Valley and shared their stories with detectives Friday in search of the missing woman’s final moments, reported KTLA.
“In the past 12 months, we have been able to do some amazing things in terms of the public awareness and the media,” said Lt. Rosemarie Fagan, who is also a member of the search for the missing woman’s car. “The people that are here, the family, we’ve spent a lot of time with the family in the past three days and we’re going to continue on until we find her.”
In the past 12 months, officers have gone out and canvassed more than 200 homes in Simi Valley and the surrounding area.
She has not been seen by family, police said, since Oct. 10.
“There was not a sighting. No sighting by the family, by an acquaintance either. There was no sign of foul play,” Rosen said. “The family is just concerned for the safety of this woman who they love dearly.”
Rosen, Clark, Lt. Fagan and other law enforcement officers have been searching for days with dogs and helicopters while canvassing the immediate area
