Elisa Lam: 21-Year-Old Missing From Downtown L.A. Possible Victim Of Foul Play

Cops were searching for a missing 21-year-old, Elisa Lam, who came to Los Angeles from Vancouver as a tourist. Unfortunately, investigators believe that her case is "suspicious" and might involve "foul play," according to an LAPD statement.

She ended up in a sketchy part of downtown and stayed in a Skid Row adjacent hotel, the circa-1927 Cecil, that has tried to cater to Euro-tourists instead of the quasi-homeless that frequent many of the old single-room occupancy businesses in the area:

According to the LAPD she arrived in L.A. Jan. 26 and intended to move along to Santa Cruz at some point.

She hasn't been seen since last Thursday, cops say.

Lam likes to take public transportation, including buses and Amtrak, according to the department.

Here's the LAPD's description of her:

... An Asian woman of Chinese descent. She has black hair, brown eyes and stands 5 feet 4 inches tall. She weighs about 115 pounds. She is fluent in English and also speaks Cantonese.

Seen her? The department would love to hear from you: 213-486-6890.

Terribly sorry to hear that...

I've recently been newly exposed to Skid Row through volunteering, and that place is scary. Definitely not a place for a young woman alone.

Praying that she is found safely.

i'm sure you're aware of it by now, but the local news was showing video of her acting very strange in an elevator. is she supposed to be on some kind of medication?

i hope it all turns out well for you. does your family have someone down here looking for her?
