No clues found in search for Mitrice Richardson

mitrice-booking-photo.jpgMore than 300 volunteers helped the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department search the ridges and trails of Malibu Canyon on Saturday without finding any evidence that sheds light on the woman's disappearance. The Times called it one of the most extensive searches in the department's history, and if true that's saying something. The quest for Richardson, who walked away from the Lost Hills sheriff's station after midnight on Sept. 17, remains a missing person investigation, the LASD says. There is evidence of Richardson suffering a bipolar break. "We'll analyze what search and rescue did, brainstorm and see where we go next," said LAPD detective Chuck Knolls, who is assigned full-time to the investigation. Sheriff Lee Baca met for two hours last week with Richardson's parents, who have concerns about how she was released. "This has a lot of different dimensions," said L.A. County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas. LAT, KPCC,
