Asian Pacific American Heritage Month: Theresa Masurat

In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, I am profiling one Asian or Pacific Islander MP for every day of the month of May. Today’s case is Theresa Masurat, who disappeared from Pasadena, California on August 22, 2014, at the age of 72. Per her brother, Theresa’s father was born in India and her mother in Sri Lanka.

Unfortunately I don’t have anything on Theresa’s disappearance. I think most or all of her family lives in Australia. She does have an IMDB entry, however, that mentions roles in two TV shows from the late 1960s.

    It appears that she appeared on Adam-12 and Marcus Welby MD. It does not explain why she is considered Endangered Missing. I wonder if she has some mental health issues. However, it bothers me that the police don’t have more details on her case. It would be interesting to know where she was living, if she was single, married, divorced. What was her normal routine. If they know more they should provide the public with more details.

      Theresa’s brother contacted me a few years ago. Her family lives in Australia; I don’t know if she has any relatives in the states at all. He didn’t seem to know much about her disappearance, unfortunately.

    Her family living in Australia, seems odd. It seems that according to one article on her was that Theresa was born in this country. Yet, you show that her parents from were from India & Sri Lanka. So, I wonder who reported her missing.

      I’m not sure who reported her missing. For her parentage I’m going by what her brother told me.
