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

    Lam is a University of British Columbia student and was hoping to graduate in 2016.

    Her sister, Sarah Lam, a makeup artist in Vancouver, tweeted a plea for help in hopes that someone will come forward with information.

    Police say they've collected some of Lam's belongings and investigators will be looking closely at security video from the hotel.

    In the video at this link the reporter closes by saying (paraphrasing) her cell phone was left behind at the hotel and it should help put together a timeline:

    A Facebook profile that appears to be Lamís says she attended University Hill Secondary School on UBC campus before university. A LinkedIn profile that appears to belong to Lam says she is expected to graduate in 2016, and a profile on the research-sharing website academia.edu that looks like Lamís says she is interested in psychology research.

    Lam's family notified Vancouver police of her disappearance when daily contact with the woman ceased on Jan. 31. Vancouver police in turn notified the LAPD and the case is now being handled by the department's robbery and homicide division, which is standard protocol for cases involving foreign nationals, said LAPD Officer Tenesha Dobine Thursday.
