Los Angeles:  The family of Manal Bali and the Los Angeles Police Department requests the public’s assistance in helping to find her.

On February 17, 2011, at around 11 a.m., Bali was last seen in the 400 block of South Gramercy Boulevard.  She had told her mother that she was going to church, but never returned, and has not contacted her family.  This behavior is very uncharacteristic of Bali and family members are extremely concerned for her wellbeing.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Bali is asked to contact the Los Angeles Police Department, Missing Persons Unit at 213-996-1800. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crimestoppers at 800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.
