While You Are Out Partying Tonight,….Do Not Forget What Happened to Mitrice Richardson

Help Find Mitrice Richardson

Help Find Mitrice Richardson

Please help to find this beautiful sister, Mitrice Richardson. Remember that she could be your relative, or little sister, wife, or girlfriend. Either way, I relate to her like she were a part of my family, so I can not forget about this. I know her family will appreciate your assistance in finding out what happened to their little girl.

Mitrice Richardson, 24, mysteriously disappeared after she left the Malibu/Lost Hills, California Sheriff’s Station at about 1 a.m. on Sept. 17. She had been arrested for not paying a restaurant tab and possessing a small amount of marijuana, and was reportedly disoriented upon her release.

“She exhibited no signs of mental illness or intoxication,” said Whitmore, explaining why she was released.

“She was fine. She’s an adult.”

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

Sutton told the newspaper that she called the Malibu-Lost Hills station to ask about posting bail and picking up her daughter, but deputies told her they had released her because they did not have room to keep her in jail.

The sheriff’s station is on a frontage road to the Ventura (101) Freeway, in a business park that is unfamiliar to the woman, her family said.

It is not served by buses at night, and family members said they have not seen or heard from Richardson since Wednesday.

“They allowed her to walk out of that facility and down that road in the pitch black night,” Richardson’s father, Michael, told the Times. “That’s not right. Now, I just want to find my child.”

The woman’s mother said deputies told her nearby residents had called to say a woman was sleeping on porches, indicating to her that Richardson was stumbling around a nearby residential neighborhood early Friday, the Times reported.

Responding to criticism from Richardson’s family, the Sheriff’s Department defended her release in a statement made by Whitmore. He said the department has a series of checks that are done before anybody is released and that those checks were done, again noting she was neither intoxicated or mentally impaired. 

Whitmore also said Richardson was made an offer to stay in the jail but she refused.

Richardson is a graduate of Cal State Fullerton and recently moved to Los Angeles to live with her grandmother near the area where she planned on teaching.

She last made contact with her family at her home in the Southeast area of Los Angeles on Wednesday, police said.

Richardson is African-American, 5-foot-5-inches and approximately 135 pounds. She has brown, curly hair and hazel eyes, and was last seen wearing a dark shirt and blue jeans, police said.

According to a flyer made by her family, Richardson has tattoos on her lower abdomen and behind her neck.

Police asked anyone with information on her whereabouts to call the LAPD’s Missing Persons Unit at (213) 485-5381, or 1-877-LAPD-24-7 after business hours or on weekends. 

Clinical psychologist Dr. Ronda Hampton, who Mitrice worked with while obtaining her degree in psychology, also made a plea to the public to help find the missing woman.
