VAN NUYS – Los Angeles police asked the public’s help Wednesday night to locate a woman who abducted her 3-year-old daughter during a visitation and is believed to be on her way to Utah with the child. Lanamarie Whitson Elliott, who was said to have a bi-polar disorder, was last seen with her daughter Alexandria at a Greyhound Bus station near Laurel Canyon and Magnolia boulevards Tuesday afternoon, said LAPD officer Lisa Ruvalcava. The girl was taken by Elliott during a scheduled visitation in the Van Nuys area shortly after noon. Elliott, who lost custody of other children because of abuse, has a strong affiliation with the Mormon Church and may be seeking refuge at a women’s shelter in Utah, Ruvalcava said. Police did not know where Elliott was from or whether she used a car during the abduction. Anyone with information should call Los Angeles Police detectives in Van Nuys at 818-756-8371.last_img read more
