There are reports this evening that what may be human remains have been found in a canyon near where Mitrice Richardson was last seen on September 17, 2009.
"Police investigators went to a remote area of Malibu Canyon on Monday afternoon after park rangers told L.A. County sheriff's officials that they'd found what appeared to be human remains.
It was not immediately clear if the bones, found more than 20 miles southeast of the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Station, were those of Mitrice Richardson, who vanished after being released from Sheriff's Department custody last September." LA Times
Another news outlet reports that the remains were found only 5 miles from where Mitrice originally disappeared.
Mitrice was last seen on September 17, 2009 in the Lost Hills area of Malibu in Los Angeles County. Since then there have been many searches in that area to no avail. There have also been reported sightings of Mitrice in Las Vegas as recently as June. Los Angeles police were in Las Vegas in the last two weeks following leads there.
I'll be praying that the remains found earlier today are not Mitrice and that where ever she is she's alive and well. I'll update this story as information becomes available.
