Family Asks Public's Help to Find Missing Mom

Megan DiPiazza, missing mother of two, disappeared on Sunday from her Sunland home. Glendale Police listed the 33-year-old Crescenta Valley High School graduate as a voluntary missing person.

La Crescenta mother Megan DiPiazza is listed as a voluntary missing person and police cannot discuss further details of the case at this time, according to Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz. 

DiPiazza was last seen by her husband at their Sunland home, CBS2 reported. Detectives Tuesday found her purse and a goodbye note at her apartment.

DiPiazza's family and friends asked Friday for the public's help via DiPiazza's Facebook page

Unfortunately we have no news on Megan DiPiazza. Her husband Sal Di Piazza is asking that anyone who is near a hospital or a rehab center ANYWHERE to just drive through a parking lot if you are nearby to see if her car is there.. 2013 Scion 2 door hatchback charcoal gray license plate 6XJR855., if you happen to be near one and see this car-please do a quick cruise through and see if you see anything. The new HIPA laws prevent them to release info to anyone-even her husband!! Thank you!!! This woman has a family, friends, and a 5 year old son who misses her tremendously!!

DiPiazza has a history of depression, according to police in a prepared statement. There is no indication of foul play. No suspicious activity has been identified.

Police told the Pasadena Star-News that investigators believe DiPiazza is with people she knows, but authorities would not release specific details. 

She is described as 33-years-old, with blond hair, green eyes, 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs 122 pounds. 

Her vehicle is a 2013 Gray Toyota Scion plate number 6XJR885 (Vehicle may not have any plates on it). 

Anyone with information that would lead to her whereabouts, please contact Glendale Police Sgt. Jeff Newton at (818) 548-3987 or (818) 548-4840.

God please watch over Megan and bring her home safe.

Thanks for the update. I didn't see anything either on line or in the Glendale News Press on Friday as to the status of this missing human being. I began to think perhaps she was home safe.

Lots and lots if prayers going out to her and her family... If the family wants help this weekend with getting her picture out there, I'd love to help pass out flyers, or whatever
Kirsten Winter November 17, 2012 at 05:21 PM
Please repost, getting her picture and story out there us important! With a car she could be anywhere... Maybe near you

Isn't that a little curious that a PD believes she is with friends but won't release details ?Here, her family and friends are tearing their hair out and they are not given any reasons for hope. Do you sometimes feel that some people are losing it ?

God Please bring Megan home Safe .

This other story said the missing lady left a note. http://montrose.patch.com/articles/update-missing-la-crescenta-mom-left-family-a-note I hope she is well and contacts them.

In one section it says she is from Sunland, & another says La Crescenta. And, Glendale PD is involved. It is confusing. Thoughts & prayers are with all involved.
ROBERT E. FISHBACK November 18, 2012 at 05:39 AM
Denise" I am with you on your take on this...I actually am beginning to think two different cars were found with victims inside in two different locations...One report seems to indicate one of the cars was found last Wednesday, long after the news on the other car was out.....

To the morons who don't get this; collectively, How would two cars have the same plate number and VIN! Ponder that genius'. Megan- I used to babysit u when u were little and I watched u grow up. We grew up in the same city,you, my, sister and I all graduated from the same high school. Our parents are friends and during some of my family's darkest hours, they helped use see the light. My mom and your mom worked together for several years. I have suffered from depression and wanted to just run away. I have two beautiful boys and I felt horrible guilt that even that didn't help. I was sure I was the only person so selfish and that it made me a bad mom. Megan, sometimes life throws too much at you but please, please know that it can be managed and it doesn't have to b immediate. It takes time. If u need this break, it's ok EVERYBODY needs a break at one time or another and iits NOT the same for everyone. If u could just do one thing for all of us who love you and are praying that u r safe. Please call and utter the words I'm ok. That's what we need to know for now.

One of these posts reminds me of a nasty center coated with sweety sweety.

That's right Rhonda and Cara!
ROBERT E. FISHBACK November 18, 2012 at 11:02 PM
I am through with this subject except for this, and some of you won't like it. I do hope that you spent half as much energy in being a friend when she was around, as you do now in trying to convince how much you care,,.
Michelle Hester November 19, 2012 at 03:31 PM
Ronda, I got Kelly's link about this and was wondering if they found her, scrolled down and found your comment. I'm praying that your friend comes home safe. Love you cousin!
ROBERT E. FISHBACK November 19, 2012 at 10:15 PM
Sorry about above post...I retract....There is still something very odd and that is that investigators have said they believe she is with friends. The reason they believe this must rest on something they found. The reason they will not release any comments makes one tempted to believe that they think if best for her to stay where she is right now with no information as to where that place is. This strongly suggests there is another factor envolved that must be taken care of before she comes out of hiding. Maybe a person who might be a danger to her well being that needs to be found and secured. Troubling, yes, but possible, also yes, and there is good news buried in all of this.

Patch spoke with Megan DiPiazza's husband, Sal, today. Here's an update on what Sal has to say about the ongoing investigation: http://patch.com/A-zDPH

Thanks for the link, Nicole. We should consider that there is a possibility that the police know more than they are telling the lady's husband. They may not have her permission to say anything to him. When my brother's children were small, is wife left him by disappearing for 6 weeks with no contact from her. One of her friends told my brother what was going on, or he would not have known she was okay. This could be a similar situation. Sometimes people can surprise even their nearest and dearest. I believe the police would be investigating if they had no idea where she was.

Diana: this thread needs someone like you, composed, fluent, and a thinker.I really believe you are on the right track....not de-railed ! b
