Boyfriend arrested after British teen goes missing

Santa Monica police are seeking a 19-year-old British woman who vanished during her vacation, and they've arrested her 45-year-old boyfriend on a weapons charge.
Leona Dawn Perryman was last seen shortly before midnight on Dec. 18.
She arrived in the U.S. in October with Paul Atkinson, who reported her missing and then himself disappeared. Police arrested Atkinson on Wednesday and call him a "person of interest."
Sgt. Robert Hernandez says Atkinson was found at a restaurant in suburban Los Angeles. Officers acting on a tip arrested him on suspicion of possessing a concealed weapon. Hernandez wouldn't disclose the type of weapon.
Atkinson remained jailed Thursday.
