This morning Tessa Moon of San Francisco appeared briefly on the Front Page on Radio Free 102.3 KJLH with Dominique DiPrima to ask the public for help in finding her girlfriend of two years Mitrice Richardson.
A Cal State Fullerton graduate who was living with her great-grandmother in South Los Angeles, Mitrice Richardson mysteriously disappeared following her September 17 predawn release from a sheriff’s substation near Malibu where she was booked for allegedly failing to pay a restaurant bill. In addition, to her studies and career, Mitrice was also one of the dancers at the Long Beach club Ripples.
A $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to her safe return.
Tonight there will be a community meeting featuring Tessa and Mitrice’s father asking the LGBT community for help.
Members of the LGBT community are asked to attend a special community meeting Monday, November 2 at 6 p.m. in the community room of Jewels Catch One located at 4067 Pico Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90019. Along with Tessa, Mitrice’s father and other family members and friends will be on hand with flyers and information on Mitrice’s last whereabouts.
