LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) —The family of a Canadian woman who disappeared after arriving in Los Angeles is asking for help in locating her.

KNX 1070’s Margaret Carrero reports Sarah Stavenow, 26, was last seen by her family on Nov. 16 in the city of Ottawa, Canada.

Her fiance, Ryan Kearney, said he spoke to Stavenow throughout the trip, during a stopover in Toronto, and again after she landed at LAX.

“I asked her to check in with me when she settled in her hotel and that’s the last point of contact we had,” Kearney said.

Stavenow was in town to pursue a job opportunity in Calabasas and was planning on staying at a Ramada in Canoga Park, according to Kearney.

Kearney believes his fiancee may have hailed a cab at LAX and never checked into her hotel room.

“We’re trying to contact cab companies to see if they remember anything, but it’s a very big city,” he said.

The Stavenow family has also started a Facebook group to help in their search for Sarah.

Stavenow is described as a white female with blond hair, blue eyes 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighing around 165 pounds. She has multiple tattoos on her left arm.

Anyone with information on Stavenow is urged to call the LAPD’s Missing Persons Division at (213)996-1800.
