Missing UCLA student's car found in Pacific Palisades

Police and family members continued their search for a missing UCLA honors student Thursday after finding his car in Pacific Palisades.

A patrol officer discovered the white Toyota Corolla at about 10 p.m. Wednesday night near Tramonto and Los Liones drives, authorities said.

David John Goeser, 22, was last seen Sunday by his roommates at his home in the 1000 block of Roebling Avenue in West Los Angeles.

His family hadn't heard from him in over a week and went to his house to check on him, only to find him missing, police said. His identification, cellphone and credit cards had been left behind.

"He left everything behind," Goeser's father, Mark, told KTLA. "That is very concerning to us."

Goeser -- a senior English and theater major, according to KTLA -- is under doctor's care and needs regular medication, family members told police. Authorities did not say what he was being treated for.

Police suspect he may be carrying a Washington state driver's license with the number GOESEDJ106L4, officials said. They ask anyone with information to call 213-996-1800.
