It’s Elaine Park’s 22nd birthday.
But for her mother, Susan, it’s not a happy day. It’s been two years since she last saw her.
“I feel very sad. I miss her very much,” Susan Park said. “I never got to say, ‘I love you.'”
Susan Park reads Facebook messages on a page dedicated to finding her daughter. A reward of $140,000 was extended through the end of the year.
But she said she knows of no fresh leads in the disappearance of her daughter.
Elaine Park was last seen around 6 a.m. Jan. 28, 2017 when she left the home of her on-again, off-again boyfriend in Calabasas. On March 2, Park’s 2015 Honda Civic was found on Pacific Coast Highway near Corral Canyon in the Malibu area, with the keys in the ignition and her belongings still inside, including a phone, computer and cash, according to her family.
Glendale police said earlier this year they questioned Park’s boyfriend, who was “completely cooperative.” Police searched the area near Park’s car with the help of bloodhounds, but found nothing.
With the case going cold, Park’s family hired a private investigator, who has told reporters that new leads have been developed that suggest foul play.
They’ve searched both in the Santa Monica Mountains and the Angeles National Forest, but found no trace.
Park is Korean-American, 5-feet-6, about 125 pounds, with brown eyes, long brown hair with blonde tips, and often wears heavy makeup. She has a cow skull tattoo on her upper left arm and another tattoo on her lower left arm.
The family asked anyone with information to call a tip line at (800) 551- 3080, or visit the website www.elainepark.tips.
