Ca’rynn Sims, Ca’Shawn’s other sister, posted a photo of her sister on Instagram. She left a one-word caption: “FOUND!!!!”

Followers on Ca’rynn’s timeline wanted more answers. The family did not comment on the inquiries.

One social media follower responded to the post saying there was a video where “Cashawn clearly states she’s being abused.”

She added, “In the video she mentioned her father was more excessive but overall, her whole family being her mom, two sisters, and father.”

Ca’Shawn, a fitness trainer with more than 217,000 followers on Instagram, was reported missing after she was released from a hospital on September 11 and 12, according to her sister Ca’rynn.

The family posted missing person flyers on social media. The LASD also asked for public help on its Facebook account, sharing her description and location where she was last seen.

Ca’Shawn’s mother revealed to ABC7 that the fitness influencer struggled with mental challenges due to the pandemic.
