Marilou Danley, 62, was met at Los Angeles International Airport by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents on Tuesday night after flying from Manila, multiple media outlets reported.

The Philippines' National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) said the FBI, its United States counterpart, had sought help in finding Marilou Danley.

Police will interview Marilou Danley, on Wednesday after a law enforcement official confirmed that the 64-year-old shooter wired the sum her ahead of his killing spree.

Sheriff Joe Lombardo said police expected more information from her "shortly".

One friend, Betty Dixon, who attended dance and exercise classes with Danley, described her as a wonderful woman.

Paddock wired $100,000 to an account in Danley's home country, the Philippines, in the week before he unleashed the worst mass shooting in modern USA history, according to multiple senior law enforcement officials.

Danley and Paddock reportedly lived together in the suburbs in Mesquite, Nevada. A neighbor, Susan Page, told the newspaper that Paddock and Danley were "closet people" and that she "never saw them".
