A beauty and fitness Instagram influencer has been missing for four weeks in Southern California, and her family is pleading for the public’s help.
Ca’Shawn Ashley Sims, also known as “Cookie,” was last seen in the city of Duarte, which is east of Los Angeles, on Sept. 8.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department posted details about the case on its Facebook page earlier this week. The post says Sims is 30 years old, with black shoulder-length hair and brown eyes. She is just over 5 feet tall and weighs 120 pounds. She has a tattoo that says “It’s found in the soul” on the left side of her collarbone, and one in Spanish writing on her back.

Her sister Ca’rynn Sims shared a flyer on Instagram Tuesday, and asked her followers to be on the lookout for the missing woman.
“She has abandoned her home, her dog and seemingly her phone which is unlike her. Our extended family (my grandad, aunts and cousins) cannot reach her,” the post says. “If you see her, stay there until I or someone from my family can be reached!!!”
Ca’Shawn Sims’ Instagram page with the handle @cookieeedough has more than 216,000 followers. The last time she posted was on July 1. She also has several other Instagram accounts under her bio, including a workout page, and an apparel business.
Her mother told Los Angeles news station ABC7, Sims was suffering with mental health issues brought on by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Anyone with information on Sims’ whereabouts is encouraged to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Missing Persons Unit at 323-890-5500.
