Georgia Family Missing, Last Seen at DTLA Homeless Shelter
A mother and her three children from Greensboro, Georgia, have gone missing in Los Angeles, and the LAPD are asking for the public's help in locating the family. The woman, 28-year-old Carolyn Hogan, and her children, Michelle (11), Jonathan (4), and Jasmine (3), were last seen on Monday, January 3, at the Union Rescue Mission in Downtown.
The children are under protective order issued by a Georgia court, which was implemented after authorities there "cited concern over the woman’s mental health and her ability to care for her children," says the LAPD.
Carolyn Hogan drove her family from Georgia to Los Angeles in a red Ford Windstar van with Georgia license plate BLH8859. It is believed they are still in Los Angeles. Social workers at the Mission did not know about the protective order until the Hogans had departed. Carolyn Hogan is not wanted for any crime; authorities are primarily concerned about the children's safety. Anyone with information on these children or their mother is urged to call their local police department or the Los Angeles County DCFS Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-540-4000.
