Where can I find the following paper?

Asparouhov, T. and Muthen, B. (2003) ‘Full-information maximum-likelihood estimation of general two-level latent variable models with missing data.’ Mplus Working Paper.

Will send it to you.

Thank you, Dr. Muthern!

Yes, I read the file you sent to me. But it looks in the growth curve model, the covariance of the error term is a diagonal matrix rather than AR1.

Do you have the details about how to estimate the correlation in a Autoregressive Latent Trajectory models? Can Mplus handle that?

It looks there is no closed estimation formula for it. Under ML framework and using EM algorithm, how can I estimate the correlation by using fisher score method or some other optimal methods in the SEM with a latent variable as dependent variable?

Thanks for your time in advance!

See UG ex 6.17 for AR1 residual correlation modeling in Mplus.
