malibusurfsidenews.com News Malibu surfside news | February 15, 2017 | 3 Malibu Country Mart hosts festive scavenger hunt Top winner takes home $4K diamond necklace from Vintage Malibu Suzy Demeter Freelance Reporter Vintage Malibu and the Malibu Country Mart hosted the fourth annual Valentine’s Day Scavenger Hunt on Sunday, Feb. 12. Couples participated in a course where they applied keen eyes, intuition and speed in a race to locate four hidden jewelry boxes within the Country Mart shopping square. Teamwork was essential in uncovering the bountiful prizes, which included Malibu Country Mart Visa gift cards of $250 and $500, a personalized beauty treatment from the Beauty Collection, and the grand prize of an 18 karat white gold diamond necklace (valued at $4,000) from the Vintage Malibu’s Kwiat Ashoka collection. Approximately 70 people engaged in the exciting activity. Within 10 minutes, all prizes were located. Grand prize winner Chase Toth said his strategy was to start on the outside of the courtyard area and work his way in to locate one of the gift boxes. “My blood sugar dropped when I found it,” he said. Vintage Malibu provided treats and gift bags to the participants. Winners brought their findings to the counter, where they retrieved their actual prizes. Toth went home with the grand prize, Dennis Murino received the $500 gift card, Jill Handman nabbed the $250 gift card, and Kennedy Poe retrieved the beauty treatment from Beauty Collection.

Suzy Demeter/22nd Century Media Glendale police without leads in Park case Missing woman’s car found along PCH early this month Lauren Coughlin, Editor Glendale police remain stumped as of Friday, Feb. 10, in the case of 20-yearold Elaine Park, whose vehicle was found along Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu on Feb. 2. Police reportedly located her personal property as well as the keys to the car in the vehicle. Park’s family reported Elaine as a missing person on Jan. 30, and she has not been seen since Jan. 28. Tahnee Lightfoot, who is in charge of media relations for Glendale police, told the Surfside that police used bloodhounds to search the area where Park’s car was located on Feb. 4. “Unfortunately, we didn’t come up with any evidence,” Lightfoot said. Lightfoot said the police are trying to talk to as many friends and people as they can regarding Park’s whereabouts, but they do not have any current leads. “We obviously are continuing our investigation as far as credit cards and bank accounts and cellphones and computers and that sort of thing, which has kind of led us in a nowhere direction,” Lightfoot said. Park is described as thin, 5 foot 6 inches tall, 125 pounds, with long brown hair with blond tips and brown eyes. She is known Elaine Park, whose car was found in Malibu Feb. 2, remains missing.
