The last time that anyone saw or heard from CSUN student Abdullah Alkadi
was when he sold his car on Craigslist on Wednesday. Neither his
roommates nor family have heard from him since then, and police are
calling the case suspicious.
Police have since followed up with the new owner of his old car, who
says he doesn’t know anything about Alkadi’s mysterious disappearance, according to ABC 7.
The very last trace of the 23-year electrical engineering student was his phone. It was deactivated, but shortly beforehand his brother Ahmad Alkadi traced it to Beaumont in Riverside County—a place where he said
his brother had no ties.
“It is unknown why he left and he did not leave a note. The family is asking for anybody who has seen him or heard from him or possibly is
friends with him on the social media to please get in contact with them
or the detectives in the missing persons unit,” LAPD officer Nuria
Vanegas told ABC 7.
Before he sold his car, he was seen at his apartment on Reseda
Boulevard around noon, and a cousin spoke with him on the phone at 5
p.m. Roommates became worried when they got home at 7 p.m. on Wednesday
and their roommate wasn’t home. They called, but received no response.
In the meantime, his family has been searching desperately to find
anyone who saw him. He and his brother are both originally from Saudi
Arabia and very close
“We have been in misery for the last two days,” his brother Ahmed
told City News Service. “We have tried everything. We called friends. We called relatives. We called everybody we knew and with no news. We are
so worried about him.”
Police said he’s described as a Middle Eastern man with black hair
and brown eyes, who stands 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighs about 110
pounds. The last time he was seen, he was wearing a blue shirt, blue
jeans or beige shorts (the LAPD release says both, which we doubt).
