There is a young woman from Canada that was visiting Los Angeles that has vanished under a mysterious circumstance. I found about this a couple of days ago, although the case is apparently a month old almost. A new aspect has occurred in the last few days though that makes it seem more like one of those old Unsolved Mysteries segments that was broadcast back in the day.
The disappearance of Elisa Lam is verging on a month old, and it seems that the media is only starting to heighten coverage of her case recently. That's likely because of the release of strange surveillance footage of the missing woman, which showed her behaving very bizarrely. Central Coast News detailed the video on Feb. 15, 2013, but there are also new claims that the woman might have been spotted in Los Angeles.
The video is linked in this Gather News article, or you can watch the video accompanying this post. Officials released it to the media on Feb. 15, 2013, and media (as well as public) interest seems to have spiked in this case. As you can see, Elisa appears to be acting erratically. At first it seems as though she may be hiding from someone, but at the same time she continually looks out of the doorway of the elevator and even steps into clear view a few times. This doesn't look like the behavior of someone who is hiding from someone else.
Here is the video in question. It's very strange.
Apparently the LA Police found a body in one of the water tanks of the hotel that fits the description of Elisa Lam.
A body believed to be missing Vancouverite Elisa Lam has been found on the roof of the downtown Los Angeles hotel where she was last seen.
The 21-year-old University of British Columbia student has been missing since January 31st – and was last seen at the Cecil Hotel, near the city's notorious skid row.
LAPD Officer Diana Figueroa told The Associated Press officers responded to the roof just after 10 a.m. Tuesday. The body is a woman in her 20s, but a positive identification by the coroner is required, officials said.

The body was discovered in one of the hotel’s four water tanks by a maintenance worker after investigating complaints about low water pressure, according to the Los Angeles Times.
