LASD expands search
Rick Custer, father of Amanda Custer, arrived in Los Angeles from out of state to help investigators search for his daughter who is believed to have been kidnapped a week ago in Monrovia. In the letter he asks for the public’s help and pleads with anyone who might have a tip to report it to law enforcement.
Amanda’s loved ones, along with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) Homicide Bureau investigators, are asking Lytle Creek and Mount Baldy community members and visitors to the area to remain vigilant and help find Amanda.
Mr. Custer ended his letter with “We are very distraught and need to bring our Amanda home.”
Amanda’s whereabouts remain unknown after being taken against her will during a domestic violence incident that occurred on Monday, July 29, at approximately 8:15 a.m. The incident occurred between her and 27-year-old suspect Robert Anthony Camou who was taken into custody on July 30 in downtown Los Angeles.
LASD Homicide Bureau investigators have also expanded their search to include the area of Lytle Creek. The suspect has great knowledge of this area as well as the Mount Baldy area.
Anyone in the area of Mount Baldy or Lytle Creek on Monday, July 29, between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. that observed Camou, Custer and/or the Toyota Prius, are encouraged to contact the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.
