Missing 22-year-old woman last seen in Shadow Hills found safe

SUN VALLEY, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A missing 22-year-old woman who was last seen in Shadow Hills has been found safe, authorities said.

Sahara Eve Von Fisher was last seen around 5 p.m. Tuesday in the 9600 block of Stonehurst Avenue. Los Angeles police said on Monday that Fisher was found in good condition, and that her family members have been notified. No further details were disclosed.

At the time when she went missing, Fisher's family and friends said she left without her cellphone. They searched the streets and the wooded area near the Tujunga wash for clues as to where she may have gone.

"It's hard to sleep. It's hard to do anything when you think someone might be out in a vulnerable situation. Worse than that, she's so kind and sweet and trusting that she may become prey," her mother, Yvonne Brossus-Fisher, said.

Her friend Flora Demirchian said she was scared something terrible may have happened to Sahara.

"I think she went out for a walk and I think the worst. I think something bad might have happened to her. I think she may have gotten lost hiking if she decided to go hiking. I wish she took her phone with her. I wish all of these things, but it's odd. It's odd that we haven't found her yet," she said.

Loved ones posted flyers all over the streets and wooded area. They also made a "Find Sahara" Facebook page, which has gained about 1,000 followers.

She is described as African American with light black hair and hazel or green eyes. She's about 5 feet 3 inches tall and 125 pounds.

Note: An earlier version of this story stated Fisher was described to be about 160 pounds, but that information was later corrected by relatives.
