A 28-year-old woman has been found wandering along the side of a freeway after she went missing three days ago.
Laura Lynne Stacy was last seen by her roommate leaving their Los Angeles apartment on Sunday, and her parents grew worried when she stopped responding to their texts, KTLA reports.
Her phone was found in a puddle about 48km from her home a day later, and on Tuesday, her car was found abandoned along a highway.
Stacy was spotted on Wednesday walking along the freeway by detectives who were driving to the area to assist in the search. An LAPD Detective said she seemed ‘confused’ and ‘somewhat disoriented’ when she was found.
She was examined by paramedics and taken to a hospital to be checked, but no details are available on how and why she went missing.
“There’s a lot of unknowns as to what transpired but she was transported just for precautionary reasons and probably just exposure to the elements,” LAPD Detective Tim O’Quinn told KTLA.
