Another member of the Ivory Coast Special Olympics team was reported missing Tuesday from an Inglewood hotel, the second member of the team to go missing in two days.
Abidjan Ouattara, 24, was last seen around 11 p.m. Monday at the Adventurer Hotel, 4200 W. Century Blvd., where he had been staying while competing, according to Inglewood police.
Ouattara had been scheduled to depart from Los Angeles International Airport at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday. He is not believed to be carrying any money or a cell phone.
Ouattara speaks only French and has physical impairments to his left hand and forearm. He was last seen wearing a white athletic jacket with a blue or orange T-shirt, white trousers and sandals.
Anyone with information was asked to call police at (310) 412-5240 or (888) 412-7463.
Another member of the Ivory Coast team, 15-year-old Shion Isimel, disappeared from LAX early Monday morning, prompting a wide-scale search. He was found around 3:40 p.m. Monday sleeping on a lawn in the 600 block of East Hyde Park in Inglewood.
Isimel vanished hours after a 44-year-old Special Olympics athlete from Albania was found safe in Hayward, in the San Francisco Bay area, after disappearing Sunday from USC.
