Elisa Lam, the Vancouver woman who disappeared in Los Angeles on Jan. 31, is seen acting strangely in new video released by police on Thursday.
A more recent photo of Lam was also publicized by the L.A. Police Department in hopes that someone will recognize her and contact them.
Lam, 21, was last seen in the lobby of The Cecil Hotel in downtown L.A. The UBC student had been travelling alone but was in regular contact with her parents until she vanished, said police last week. Her final destination was apparently Santa Cruz, north of L.A.
The troubling video appears to be from a camera in a hotel elevator. Lam is seen pushing several buttons in the elevator, peering into the hallway and looking agitated. She leaves the elevator and then returns a few times.
Police have called her disappearance "suspicious."
The Find Elisa Lam Facebook page is growing in support. There are also people posting claiming to have sighted the missing woman. One poster claims that he might have seen the missing woman "on Wilshire and Western." The person posted on the page that the woman appeared to be suffering from some kind of mental condition and was "yelling nonstop into the air."
