A 21-year-old Canadian woman who disappeared in Los Angeles while travelling alone appears to have been staying in a particularly dangerous part of the city.
The Los Angeles Police Department reports that Elisa Lam, 21, has not been heard from in over a week. She was last seen on Jan. 31, by staff at the Cecil Hotel, located on South Main Street and in downtown L.A.
The area borders the Los Angeles neighbourhood known as skid row, an area with a history of drugs, homelessness and crime.
