LOS ANGELES (AP) — A search is underway for a second Ivory Coast Special Olympics athlete who vanished near Los Angeles, just hours after his teammate was found safe.

Officials say Abidjan Ouattara was last seen around 11:00 p.m. Monday leaving an Inglewood hotel, where his team had been staying.

The 28-year-old golfer was scheduled to leave Los Angeles on Tuesday afternoon.

A surveillance camera photo shows the French-speaking athlete wearing glasses, a white athletic jacket, white pants and sandals.

Inglewood police believe Ouattara has no money or cellphone with him.

Another member of the Ivory Coast delegation, a 15-year-old autistic table tennis player, was found sleeping on an Inglewood lawn Monday afternoon.

A 44-year-old Albanian bowler missing since Saturday turned up at a Northern California police station early Monday morning.
