Police are asking for the public’s help in finding a 26-year-old Pacoima woman who has been missing since Wednesday.

Robin Sanderson, who was described as being of poor mental health, was last seen at her hRobin Sanderson dogome in the 11000 block of Cayuga Avenue in Pacoima. She left with her 3-month-old brown pit bull terrier and was wearing a blue tank top and tan shorts, carrying a light yellow blanket, an orange bag and an acoustic guitar.

[Updated at 2:38 p.m. Sanderson’s mother, Marian Thompson, clarified her daughter’s mental condition as possible depression. Thompson also said her daughter, who is a poet and also designs jewelry, was a Pasadena resident temporarily staying with her grandmother in Pacoima while waiting for her apartment to become available.]

Sanderson is biracial (white and black) and 5 feet, 6 inches tall, and weighs 175 pounds. She has brown hair and blue eyes, and wears a gold nose ring. Family members said it was out of character for her to be not in touch with family and friends.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Los Angeles Police Department’s missing-persons unit at (213) 485-5381, or the 24-hour (877) LAPD-24-7 (527-3247).
