Cecilia Foss said her friend Leierth-Segura was ‘safe’ but did not reveal any details about wher she had been for more the last three months

‘Her family has asked for privacy and I can’t share any of the details, but she is safe now. 

‘Thank you to everyone who helped look for her and shared her story, and to the Beverly Hills Police Department for doing an incredible job finding her.’

The missing persons report has now been closed and the Beverly Hills Police Department has declined to reveal any information about Leierth-Segura’s disappearance. 

Leierth-Segura’s reappearance was also confirmed by friend Liz Montgomery in a now deleted Facebook post. 

‘I just wanted to share that my friend, Camela has been found and she is safe,’ she wrote.

‘I can’t offer any other details than that, but I wanted to thank everyone for all of your support. We would not have found her without you. Thank you!!!’ 

A missing persons report was filed for Leierth-Segura, who is originally from Nederluleå, Sweden, after family and friends were unable to contact her for weeks. 

Foss told The Independent at the time that she feared someone has abducted Camela and was holding her somewhere.

‘My worst fear is that someone has her, and is hurting her,’ she said.

Montgomery had called for a welfare check after Leierth-Segura’s sister, who is in Sweden, raised concerns. 

Police responded to Leierth-Segura’s last known address in Beverly Hills where the landlord informed them she had been evicted.

‘She had mentioned it to all of us that she was having trouble; Covid definitely was not helpful for her because she’s a musician, model, actress, all that stuff,’ Montgomery told The Los Angeles Times. 

‘And there was no money coming in.

‘When I woke up in the morning there was already a message saying ‘Hey, have you talked to Camela?”

Neighbors at the time echoed Foss’ worries, saying it’s uncommon for Leierth-Segura to go silent. 

Harrison Silverman, who lived nearby, said he would talk to Leierth-Segura once a week but that he had not heard from her at all since June. 

Shiva Bagheri said she had not seen Leierth-Segura’s car in more than a month.

Friends and neighbors confirmed she had been struggling to pay rent prior to her disappearance but that they did not believe she would just up and vanish. 

‘She means the world to us and time is of the essence. Her family in Sweden is pleading for your assistance,’ Montgomery wrote on Instagram.
