Previous story: Caroline Karimi, 18, did not show up at her job at the San Gabriel Valley Medical Center on Monday, said the Los Angeles Police Department.
Karimi who lives on the 2900 block of Queensbury Street, in Cheviot Hills was seen on a surveillance camera leaving a Vons on Monday. She texted her mother that she was going to work.
“She was going to the hospital. She put the hospital uniform on, she got to her car, she got lunch for herself to go to the hospital. She was going there. I don’t know why it got interrupted,” said Caroline’s dad. “We didn’t notice anyone around her. I keep watching the security camera of five minutes after she left and nobody was following her.”

She was scheduled for work that day but never made it. She also had a plane ticket to go to Boston on Wednesday for a family gathering and she did not show up for that either.
Karimi is 5’5″ tall and 135 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes and was wearing a dark-blue hospital shirt, white pants and orange-and-blue shoes. Karimi drives a green 2007 Toyota Prius and that is missing also, The license plate is 5YVV475.
Looking at the map below, the direct route would be on the 10 all the way until she gets off on S. Garfield which is a city street until she gets to the medical center, about 2 miles away. If anything happened to her on the freeway, which is about a 20 minute drive, given there was mild traffic, someone would have seen something. If something happened from S. Garfield to the medical center someone would have seen something. The Von’s she went to on National Blvd. is on a busy street and right next to the 10, so that would leave very little time for something to happen to her before she got on the freeway. My only guess at this point is she got off the freeway somewhere along the line or didn’t go on the freeway. I am thinking she could have taken a detour to meet up with someone before going to work.
If you see her please call the police at 213-996-1800.
