Police in Oakland, California, have removed a woman’s name from its missing persons database Sunday after police confirmed she was safe.
Lisa Hu was not found by police after she was reported missing approximately eight years ago.
She contacted Oakland police to tell them she was never missing and had been unaware that a missing persons report had been filed about her, according to a report from KRON4.
Hu was reported missing by family December 8, 2015, according to CBS News.
According to her LinkedIn profile, Hu was a writer for the Minnesota Playlist around the time she was reported missing. She had held that job in the greater Minneapolis-St. Paul area for more than three years.
She also worked for Macalester College until November 2015, her profile shows, with her latest posting there as an admissions officer.
She began work in Berkely, California, May 2016 on a short-term project that was followed by a few more short gigs before she returned to Oakland to be The Greenlining Institute’s special projects coordinator.
After occupying that role for slightly longer than one year, she transitioned to Energy Equity Program Manager for the company until she left in April 2021.
Hu left The Greenlining Institute for a full-time position as an associate planner for the California Governor’s Office of Planning and Research. She worked there for one year.
In 2022, she went to work for the California Strategic Growth Council as a Senior Program Analyst, the job she still occupies, according to her LinkedIn profile.
Since Berkely is only about five miles away from Oakland, it would appear Oakland police did not put much, if any, effort into locating Hu.
