Authorities are looking for a mother from La Crescenta who has been missing since Sunday night.Megan (Ganajian) DiPiazza, 33, was last seen in the La Crescenta/Sunland-Tujunga area, Glendale Police Sgt. Robert William told Montrose-La Crescenta Patch. Police have listed her as an endangered missing person.

The La Crescenta native is described as a blonde with green eyes, who is 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs about 120 pounds, Los Angeles Police Sgt. Jim Reid of the Foothill Community Station told Patch.

Investigators tried to track her through her cell phone, but it was turned off. It appears that her car is gone as well, because police are putting out her license plate number. She was driving a 2013 gray, two-door Scion with the license plate #6XJR885, police said.

Family and friends have been asking for the public's help finding DiPiazza through social media websites (including Twitter). If you know anything about DiPiazza, contact authorities. Call the Glendale Police Department at 818-548-4840 or the LAPD Foothill Community Station at 818-756-8861.
