    Lam's final destination was believed to be Santa Cruz, authorities said, but it was unclear why she was traveling in California.

    Hmm....I'm assuming they've started checking the various paths to head north? Any indication she may have gone south (to San Diego or beyond) on her own or otherwise? When was she supposed to leave LA to head toward Santa Cruz? Stops in between?

    her disappearance is suspicious and may suggest foul play.. what does that mean? Is it because she stopped contact with family? I've never heard that before.

    What was Elisa doing here in LA? A bit of background would be of great help. Wonder if there's any Canadian articles about her missing.

    Nothing new here except there is a video of part of the press conference hosted outside the hotel. You can see the part of the hotel that Elisa was staying in ("Stay on Main" - a hostel attached to the Cecil Hotel). A couple of hostel guests are briefly interviewed and Elisa's family stands behind the LEO speaking at the press conference.

    LE is checking her credit card and phone records. Still no comment on why Eliza was in California (other that she is a tourist).

    I noticed that TripAdvisor has a separate review for Stay on Main (and you can see photos there). It is clearly geared toward a younger budget crowd. The reviews here also comment on the sketchiness of the area and they felt unsafe about going out at night. Most rooms don't have their own bathroom (not uncommon for traveler's hostels).

    On a separate note, the KTLA video (in news article linked further up) mentions that Elisa takes medication and 'may have mental health issues'. I hope she is o.k. and that she has her medication with her. Her family must be frantic!

    Finally, I noticed that in the image of her from FB, she appears to be on the set for the George Stoumboulopoulos show. She appears to be sitting in George's seat though (he usually sits on the left side based on images I've found on line) so perhaps she just visited the set or the photo is backwards. I haven't come across any mention of a link between Elisa and the show online yet.
    Any man's death diminishes me,
    Because I am involved in mankind,
    Therefore, send not to know, for whom the bell tolls;
    It tolls for thee.

    Vancouver woman missing in L.A. last heard from 6 days ago

    snipped...Police say Lam had been in L.A. for three days after spending several days in San Diego.

    ...She didnít have a car and was travelling by Amtrak train and public transit.

    Homicide and robbery investigators are in the process of going through surveillance footage at the hotel, and monitoring whether her debit and credit cards have been used.

    Itís not known if her belongings were left in the hotel.
