Authorities said that Lorber checked into a Malibu motel on Thursday night, located in the 22000 block of the Pacific Coast Highway, before her car was discovered abandoned a few days later in Malibu.

Her rental vehicle, a white 2018 Toyota Rav4, was found at 11:15 p.m. Sunday parked on Pacific Coast Highway at Paradise Cove Road.

Lober reportedly suffered from depression and her family initially told deputies they were concerned for her health.

A $10,000 reward was offered by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors for information regarding Lober's disappearance.
