Jennifer Michelle Lorber: Authorities seek whereabouts of missing Denver, Colorado woman after checking into Malibu hotel with her car abandoned.
California authorities are seeking the whereabouts of a missing Colorado woman who disappeared while on a trip to Los Angeles.
Jennifer Michelle Lorber, 30, checked into a Malibu motel before her rental car was discovered abandoned Sunday near the Pacific Coast Highway, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said. Her disappearance follows Lorber flying in from Denver to Los Angeles, Thursday evening, where she soon after made her way to a Malibu motel.
Her family had not heard from the jewelry designer since 11 p.m. Thursday, the same day she arrived according to officials.
Lorber’s rental car, a white 2018 Toyota Rav4, was found at 11:15 p.m. Saturday parked on Pacific Coast Highway at Paradise Cove Road, Deputy Tracy Koerner said.
‘Lorber suffers from depression and her family is concerned for her wellbeing,’ the sheriff’s department said in a statement.
