Investigators are asking for the public’s help in finding a missing Colorado woman who disappeared shortly after arriving in Los Angeles, leaving behind few clues to her whereabouts.
The last known contact with 30-year-old Jennifer Michelle Lorber was Thursday evening around 11 p.m., after Lorber had flown from Colorado to Los Angeles.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said Lorber had checked into a motel room in the 22000 block of the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu shortly before she disappeared, according to a statement from the department.
She had also rented a White Toyota Rav4 rental car, however officers discovered the car abandoned near the Pacific Coast Highway around 1 a.m. Sunday, local station KABC reports. There was no sign of Lorber.
“Lorber suffers from depression and her family is concerned for her well-being,” the sheriff’s office said.
Friends of the missing woman have taken to social media in the days since her disappearance to spread awareness of their missing friend.
“Jenny is the best of the best and we love her like family. Please keep your eyes peeled for this wonderful woman. I truly feel sick over this,” wrote Sky LaBrot.
LaBrot said Lorber had been planning to visit her during her time in California.
Another friend, Suzanne Spiegel, wrote that Lorber is “one of my favorite people,” and asked that the missing person’s flyer developed by the sheriff’s office be shared “far and wide” as the search continues.
“Her friends and her family are doing all we can, but we need help,” she wrote.
Lorber is described as being 5’1” and weighing 100 pounds, with long brown hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information about the case is urged to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Missing Persons Unit or the “Crime Stoppers” hotline.
