Twenty-year-old James Daniel O'Connell, a.k.a. Jamie, was last seen at a Bel Air graduation party about 2 a.m. Saturday, according to Los Angeles police. Bloodhounds tracked a scent from Sunset Boulevard south on Sepulveda Boulevard, but no other evidence about the man was found.
Channel 7 reports that the man killed in traffic was identified as O'Connel.
The man's family hired a private detective and went on a door-to-door search for him over the weekend.
