Missing: Mitrice Richardson

Mitrice Richardson

Editor’s Note: This story is truly a mess. Everything from start to finish seems really suspect. I hope that they find her alive but the fact that there has been absolutely no contact made to her family, it doesn’t seem very hopeful. Lift her and her family up, you guys. They’re going to need it.

The father of a woman missing since Friday believes his daughter is being held against her will.

Michael Richardson says he’s been conducting his own investigation into the disappearance of his daughter Mitrice, 24. He says her friends told him she’s been acting strangely ever since she met a female friend who’s been supplying Mitrice with marijuana. Richardson says he’s trying to track that friend down in an effort to locate his daughter.

Richardson continues to blame the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for releasing his daughter after sheriff’s deputies affested her Thursday night.

Witnesses said Richardson was drunk and unable to pay her $89 bill at Geoffrey’s restaurant on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu about 10 p.m. Thursday, according to her parents.

Richardson was taken by deputies to the Malibu-Lost Hills station and booked on suspicion of not paying for the meal and possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore told the Los Angeles Times. The marijuana was allegedly found in her white 1990 Honda Civic, which was impounded.

Richardson was released about 1:25 a.m. Friday because “she exhibited no signs of mental illness or intoxication. She was fine. She’s an adult,” Whitmore said.

Whitmore said the jailer offered to let Richardson stay through the night, but she declined.

According to her mother, Latice Sutton, a manager she spoke to at Geoffrey’s said Richardson appeared to be in “no condition to drive” while at the restaurant. Continue…

Skylar ThompsonMaywood police are searching for a 13-year-old girl who was seen leaving a party with a man in his 20s on Friday night.

Skylar Thompson reportedly left home around 11 a.m. and was later seen leaving with a young man at a party in the evening near 3rd Avenue and Warren Avenue in Maywood, police said.

Skylar is from Carol Stream but has spent the summer living with relatives in the 1400 block of South 20th Avenue in Maywood, according to her mother, Sharon Thompson.

A friend of the 8th-grader told Skylar’s mother that liquor was being served at the party.

The friend added that she observed Skylar leaving with a young man who offered to walk her home. Thompson said the girl’s curfew is 8 p.m.

“I was waiting and waiting but she never came home,” said Thompson. “She’s usually follows the rules. She’s a good girl.”

Thompson reported the girl missing to police early Saturday morning around 2 a.m.

Jourdan Keel

Police issued an Amber Alert on Friday, Sept. 4, for a 4-year-old with cerebral palsy last seen Thursday with his father.

The child is Jourdan Keel, who police described as black, 3-foot, six-inches tall and weighing 40 pounds.

Police said the father is a known drug user. They are looking for a 2002 burgundy Chrysler minivan with temporary Ohio tags S958511. Detective Steve Derringer said the van does not have tags on the front.

The child needs medication three times a day, and police are concerned about his health and safety, Derringer said.

“The last time he had his medication was 9 a.m. yesterday,” Derringer said, Friday.

The detective said the last time Jourdan was seen was 1 p.m. Thursday when he and his father arrived for an appointment at Childrens Medical Center for the child’s therapy. The father called the child’s mother that afternoon to say they were on their way home. The mother called police at 5 a.m. Friday.

Derringer did not know why the mother waited until Friday morning to call.

“There are some indications they may be heading to Connecticut,” he said.

The father is William Keel, described as black, 5-foot-10, weighing 215 pounds, bald with brown eyes. Derringer said the father has an extensive out-of-state federal narcotics record.

Anyone with information is asked to contact their local law enforcement agency as soon as possible.
