Investigators Interview Husband Of Missing Diver
PALOS VERDES (CBSLA.com) — Sheriff’s homicide investigators have interviewed the husband of a missing Marina del Rey woman and say he was fully cooperative.
Divers have been searching the Palos Verdes Peninsula for four days in hopes of finding Rebecca Weiss, an experienced free diver.
The 50-year-old has been missing since Saturday after she reportedly went snorkeling off the sands of the Terranea Resort.
Her husband, Alan Weiss, told homicide investigators he went looking for his wife at the area they frequently went diving when she failed to return home.
Investigators said that the husband’s statement Thursday matched the one he gave to police when his wife first went missing.
Weiss allegedly found her car in the parking lot and some personal items on the sand, according to officials.
Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau detectives are now planning on interviewing 60-year-old Weiss as a part of the investigation.
CBS2/KCAL9’s Carter Evans spoke to the missing woman’s mother, Vilma Causey, on Wednesday.
Causey said she hasn’t spoken to her son-in-law since her daughter went missing. “I find that weird,” she said.
After several days of declining to comment, Alan Weiss sent CBS2 and KCAL9 a message Wednesday evening about his wife. “I am very concerned, Rebecca is a great diver. We have been all around the world. This is just not what I ever expected. This should only be about Rebecca. Anyone who has seen her. Please contact the sheriff’s office in PV [Palos Verdes]. Thank you.”
The missing woman is described as 5 feet 5 inches, 115 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
Weiss said his wife was last seen wearing a wet suit when she left their condominium in the 13000 block of Marina Pointe Drive.
Officials ask anyone with information to contact the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department.
