"My worst fear is that someone has her, and is hurting her," longtime pal Cecilia Foss said, telling The Independent Leierth-Segura is not known to go MIA. "If she was going for a drive to clear her head, I get it. But it's been seven weeks. And no one has heard from her. Nobody goes for a seven-week drive."

In a separate interview, Foss added, "I'd like to think that nothing bad happened, but do I think something bad happened? Yeah."

Leierth-Segura has been missing since June 27, according to a Facebook post from Beverly Hills P.D. Friends last heard from her days later and revealed that her car, a 2010 silver Ford Fusion, was spotted during the night of June 30.

In a follow-up emailed statement, Evans said that the department could not confirm the information in reports, citing the importance of them conducting a "thorough, comprehensive, and untainted investigation."

"As we have seen in well-known investigations, a party's involvement is truly determined as time goes on," he continued.

"At this time, I cannot confirm or deny any of the statements that were provided by anyone who knows the missing person as it is still preliminary," the statement read.
