NORTHRIDGE : Missing Model's Interviewer Sought

Los Angeles police said Friday that officers want to contact a man who interviewed Kimberly Pandelios, a Northridge mother and part-time model, on the day she disappeared last month.

The man, who police know only as "Paul," is not a suspect but could provide investigators with important information, Detective Bruce Kuehl said.

Pandelios, 20, was last heard from Feb. 27 when she called her baby-sitter to say that she was on her way to the Burbank-Glendale area to meet with a man named Paul for a photo shoot, Kuehl said.

Later that day, Paul called to say that Pandelios had been there and had left her appointment book.

Pandelios' 1990 black Plymouth was found about 1:40 a.m. the next day on Angeles Forest Highway near the Monte Cristo campground north of Altadena, Kuehl said.

Information in the appointment book or known by Paul might be helpful in the investigation, Kuehl said.

Police asked that anyone with information about Pandelios to call (213) 485-5381.
