The Sheriff’s Department, the LAPD and search and rescue forces will join in a "major field search" of the Lost Hills/Malibu Canyon area on the morning of Saturday, Jan. 9, for Mitrice Richardson, the Watts woman who disappeared after being released from the Lost Hills sheriff’s station on Sept. 17, says the Malibu Surfside News. Richardson is the 24-year-old who had been booked on two misdemeanor counts after not paying an $89 tab at Geoffrey's in Malibu, then was released to walk home despite signs of a mental disturbance. She hasn't been located since, apparently, despite reports of sightings.
