Police asked for the public’s help Sunday to find a 20-year-old Glendale woman who’s been missing for nearly seven days.

Police ended a three-day, intensive ground search for the woman on Saturday after Park’s car was found Thursday along Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu with her keys, cellphone and other personal belongings inside.

Saturday’s search began about 7 a.m. and concluded at noon, according to Glendale police Sgt. Robert William.

“At this time detectives will be re-focusing on family and friends,’ said William.

Elaine Park was reported missing on Monday after she failed to return home following a date last Saturday night with her boyfriend, he said. On Thursday,

A search and rescue team and detectives have been searching for her, utilizing four blood hounds,” William said. He said the search was initiated Saturday “along the Pacific Coast Highway, near Corral Canyon and near the Malibu Motorhome park.”

Deputies found Park’s 2015 Honda Civic parked near Corral Canyon Road on Thursday, ABC7 reported.

Park’s status has been changed from voluntarily to “critical missing,” William said.

“We are very concerned for her well being,” he said.

Investigators questioned Park’s boyfriend, who has been “completely cooperative,” William said.

Park is Korean-American, 5-feet-6, about 125 pounds, with brown eyes, long brown hair with blonde tips, and often wears heavy makeup. She has a cow skull tattoo on her upper left arm and another tattoo on her lower left arm, William said.

Anyone with information regarding her whereabouts was urged to call 911 or Glendale police at (818) 548-4911. Tipsters can also call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS. All tips can be made anonymously.
