Family, friends and concerned members of the community are now offering a reward of $250,000 cash for any viable information on 20-year-old actress Elaine Park, who has been missing since late January.
At a media conference Tuesday, held at the L.A. Press Club, Park’s mother pleaded for any information that could help investigators find her daughter.
Elaine was a musician and actress who had small roles in a number of movies and TV shows, including Desperate Housewives, E.R., MadTV, Role Models and Crazy Stupid Love.
The substantial reward is only being offered until Sept. 15. Friends and family explained that was enough time for someone to come forward with information to Elaine’s whereabouts. They are hopeful that amount will prompt speed.
According to private investigator Jayden Brant, who is working with the Park family to locate Elaine, the case is classified as a “unwilling missing person” by authorities.
Elaine was last seen when she left the home of her ex-boyfriend in Calabasas. Her car was located Feb. 2 on Pacific Coast Highway just south of Corral Canyon Road in Malibu with the doors unlocked and her possessions inside, which included a phone, ID and some cash.
Brant said he is working in conjunction with authorities and has leads he is following, but declined to be specific. The private investigator said the case was not considered a suicide and foul play is suspected.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Elaine or information on her disappearance is asked to call (800) 551-3080 or visit elainepark.tips.
