Woman Disappears after Leaving Nightclub NR13491rf

Los Angeles:  Los Angeles Police Department missing persons detectives are requesting public assistance to locate a woman who hasn’t been seen or heard from since she left an Inglewood nightclub.

About 1 a.m. on Nov. 6, 2013, Los Angeles resident Iya Sloan stepped outside of a nightclub in the 200 block of South La Brea Avenue after spending time with friends inside. Since that time, it seems she has vanished, and her family is very concerned. Sloan, who is also the mother of 5-year-old twins, has never been missing before and hasn’t been in contact with her children.

Sloan is described as a 30-year-old Black female with brown hair and eyes. She is 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs about 170 pounds.  She was last seen wearing blue pants with a gray shirt and gray, open-toed shoes.  


Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Sloan should contact LAPD Missing Persons Unit Detective Merrill at (213) 996-1800.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247).  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
