When it comes to the daily news and weather, viewers are accustomed to seeing their regular people providing updates on the latest — and they become a bit concerned when reporters are missing for more than a few days at a time. Meteorologist Liberté Chan is no exception to this. So what happened to her, anyway? Let's take a closer look at why the Los Angeles, Calif., reporter was MIA in early 2021.

For those who aren't familiar, Liberté is a meteorologist and reporter at KTLA 5. She got her start at the station back in 2003, when she worked as a writer for Hal Fishman 's one-hour news show KTLA 5 News at 10. After that, Liberté reported in Santa Barbara County for KCOY-TV/KKFX-TV and then worked as a weekday morning news anchor in Palm Springs for KMIR-TV. In 2010, she returned to KTLA, where she still works today. (Or at least fans hope she does!)

The former competitive figure skater — who at one point was nationally ranked in both singles and pairs — has also posted videos of herself trying out some old moves from her skating days.
