A $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the whereabouts of a Cal State Fullerton graduate who has been missing for almost two weeks.The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors announced the reward Tuesday.

Mitrice Richardson, 24, of South Los Angeles was arrested at Geoffrey's restaurant on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu because she was unable to pay her bill. She was alone at the restaurant.

Richardson was taken to the Malibu-Lost Hills station of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and booked for failing to pay her bill and possessing less than an ounce of marijuana. Deputies say they found the drug in Richardson's Honda Civic. The car was impounded.

Richardson was released in the early morning hours of Sept. 17 and has not been heard from since. She did not have a cell phone with her.

Over the weekend, crews searched an area of the Santa Monica Mountains in Malibu for Richardson but did not find her.

Anyone with information is asked to call LAPD Missing Persons at (877) 527-3247.
