Authorities Say Missing ICE Agent Is Safe And Sound

SILVER LAKE ( —  Authorities now believe a missing ICE agent was picked up by a fellow officer and that no foul play is suspected.

The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed Wednesday they were helping look for a missing agent. Late Wednesday they said the missing agent was safe and sound.

The agent’s car and cell phone were found abandoned in Silver Lake on the northbound 101 Freeway.

Sources said the missing agent reported he had car trouble early Wednesday morning about 2:30 a.m.

KCAL9’s Cristy Fajardo said the agent called a friend for assistance. When the friend arrived, the agent’s car and cell phone were found but the agent was nowhere to be found.

Apparently the agent also called another friend.

Late Wednesday, ICE released a statement: “Authorities now believe the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officer who was the subject of a large-scale search in Los Angeles Wednesday evening was picked up by a fellow ERO employee after experiencing vehicle problems overnight on a local freeway.”
