SOUTH LOS ANGELES (KTLA) – A south L.A. family is desperate to get help in locating their mother, who has been missing for a week.
49-year-old Marta Michel was last seen on Jan. 19 at a bus stop after leaving the Casa India Restaurant in downtown L.A. Originally from El Salvador, Michel is described as 4’11”, 160 lbs., with brown eyes and red hair.
Now her husband and her children are hoping to get help or information from anyone who might have seen Michel.
Michel’s 18-year-old daughter Diana doesn’t understand her mother’s disappearance. “She wouldn’t leave. She wouldn’t,” Diana says. “The only family she has here doesn’t know what happened. She wouldn’t leave.”
And Michel’s sons have messages for their mother. Her 13-year-old son Roberto says, “Mom, if you’re out there, come back. We miss you.”
And Michel’s 10-year-old son David says, “We all love her and we want her to come back to the house.”
Anyone with information as to Michel’s whereabouts is asked to contact the LAPD.
