Chianti Morgan, Young TV Assistant, Goes Missing in Hollywood
Updated at the bottom with Morgan found. First posted at 8:07 a.m. Monday.
Friends and family are looking for a petite young woman who they say never returned after taking out the trash Saturday morning in Hollywood.
Chianti Edward Morgan, who calls herself Chianti Love, says on her Facebook page that she works as an assistant for the Style television network.
A missing bulletin on Facebook does not list her age, but ...
... Morgan appears to be in her early to mid-20s.
She's 5 feet, 1 inch tall and weights 120 pounds according to her friends. A Facebook page says:
She hasn't been seen since 7:15 AM yesterday (Saturday) when she went to take out the trash at her home in Los Angeles ... This is an open Missing Persons case, so please also dial 911 with any leads.
The Facebook notice states that she could be in Hollywood, downtown L.A., Santa Monica, Venice or Torrance.
Her own Facebook page, which indicates she's in a relationship, says Morgan went to Santa Monica High School and attended L.A. City College. She writes this about herself:
... Social activist, youth leader and inspirational speaker in Los Angeles. Using the performing arts as a vehicle, Chianti is apart of the next generation of community leaders, and believes in a society where all youth are valued, respected, and play a leading role in creating thriving communities. She is most appreciated for her uplifting words and warm smile.
[Update at 11:36 p.m. Tuesday]: We got word earlier today that the Facebook page asking for help announced that Morgan has been found. The page is now down, it appears, but we captured this cryptic note:
Chianti has been found and is getting the medical attention she needs. The Morgan family requests that you do NOT contact them. They will contact people when they are ready to talk. Please respect their wishes.
