Girlfriend of Missing Woman Pleads for Help

The girlfriend of missing Los Angeles woman Mitrice Richardson is asking LGBT people to get involved in her search.

Richardson, 24, went missing after being released from a sheriff's station in Malibu on September 17. Police had arrested her at an area restaurant when she was unable to cover her $89 bill on the evening before.

Tessa Moon will make an appeal tonight at 6 p.m. at Jewel's Catch One community room in Los Angeles. Moon and Richardson have been in a relationship for two years.

"If I could tell her anything right now, it would be 'Don't be afraid. We're coming,'" she told the Los Angeles Times on Monday.

Moon was in the same motorcycle club, the Chosen Few, as Richardson's father Michael, who is urging police to release security footage from the night his daughter was arrested to prove that she was not in the right mental state to be released from police custody. She was discharged from the station at approximately 1:25 a.m., according to a family website, with no cell phone or purse. None of her bank accounts or credit cards have been used since she went missing, KTLA News reports.

Detectives say that she does not appear to have been a victim of foul play, nor was she involved in any illegal activity. Richardson's family has disclosed that she has mental health issues that may pose a hindrance to discovering her whereabouts.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to Richardson's return. Anyone with information may call (213) 485-2531.
