Mitrice Richardson

*Mitrice Richardson, who vanished after being released from an L.A. County sheriff’s station early one September morning last year, may be alive and living in Las Vegas, according to law enforcement officials, reports the LA Times.

On Thursday, at a news conference in that city, they will make a public plea for her to come forward.

“Please let us know you’re OK,” Steve Whitmore, a spokesman for the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, said of their message to Richardson. “You’re not in trouble. You’ve done nothing wrong. You are not the subject of a criminal investigation. You will not be arrested.”

A friend from Richardson’s teenage years said he saw her in a bar at the Rio (hotel) on Father’s Day weekend in June.
