pm Tuesday and been reported missing to authorities was found safe last
On Tuesday evening, the Santa Monica Police Department issued a bulletin asking for the public’s help in locating Laila Kaddoura.
The bulletin said Kaddoura had been diagnosed with Asperger syndrome and
suffered from anxiety and depression and was listed as a “critical”
missing person because of those conditions, along with her age.
SMPD Sgt. Jay Moroso said officers from the Los Angeles Police
Department found Kaddoura at a MTA bus station in downtown Los
Angeles on Tuesday night.
“There was no foul play,” Moroso said. “She was released to an adult family member.”
