Mr. Richard Cox was located early on September 22, 2010 and has been reunited with his family.

Los Angeles:
  The family of Richard Cox and the Los Angeles Police Department is asking for the public’s
help in locating Mr. Richard Cox.

Mr. Cox was last seen on Saturday, September 11. 2010 at around 12:30 a.m., by a family member that dropped Mr. Cox off at a home located in the 4000 block of 59th place.  When Mr. Cox didn’t make contact with his family later that morning they went to his home located in the 5300 block of San Vicente Boulevard.  The family was able to determine that he had made it home.  His car was parked in his parking space but Cox was nowhere to be found.  Mr. Cox has not made contact with any family members and has failed to show up to work which is uncharacteristic of him.  

The Cox family is extremely concerned for his welfare.  Mr. Cox is described as a 46-year-old male Black with brown hair and brown eyes.  He stands about 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs around 185 pounds.  Mr. Cox has several tattoos including a Nike swoosh on his right arm, a cross on his right arm, a heart with the letters “ABC” on his right arm, the letters “J” and “K” on his left arm and “Donna” on his chest.
