Car of missing Aurora teen Raven Cassidy Furlong found in southern California, family reports

Family: 'Disturbing items' found in car

A car belonging to missing Colorado teen Raven Cassidy Furlong was found in California, according to a Facebook page devoted to finding her.

An update posted at about midnight Monday said the family got a parking ticket from Venice, Calif. that led them to believe the 17 year old was in the area.

Furlong's mother and step-father flew immediately to Los Angeles, according to the post on Facebook.

The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed they had someone watch Furlong's car until her mother got there.  Furlong's family waited 12 hours by the car but no one picked it up. The post said the family has no proof anyone has been with the car since 6 p.m. Friday.

"Inside the car items found of Raven’s appeared as if she may be with the car," the Facebook post said. "But the disturbing items belonging to others raised more issues and unanswered questions continue."

Furlong has been missing from Aurora since Feb. 5. Police consider her a runaway.

Furlong's mother told 7NEWS she received a brief phone call from the teen in February.

"She said she couldn't talk, she's gotta go. It's not her phone,” Lin Furlong said.  "It was total relief to know she's OK. She's alive.  I'm still really scared for her.  I'm really nervous."

Furlong's family says they fear a predator saw her on-line profile, met up with her and may be holding her.

They say they're concerned Model Mayhem had a role in the teen's disappearance

"There might be some legitimate photographers on there, but I think it's a gateway for trafficking young women," Lin Furlong said.

Furlong's mother did an interview with Fox Los Angeles Monday night and said there are people she wants to question who wouldn't be available until Tuesday morning.
