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).

    Anyone with information is urged to contact LAPD’s Missing Persons
    Unit at (213) 996-1800. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.

    Rupa suffered extensive injuries when her stepmother threw acid in her face while she was sleeping in 2008.

    She was allegedly left without any medical aid for six hours before her uncle found her and transported her to hospital, where she underwent eleven operations and spent three months being cared for.

    “I went from being totally unknown and never acting professionally to being in a major movie and being very famous. It all happened so quickly, I didn’t have any time to work things out. It’s been pretty scary at times.”

    Peaceful student protesters in Hong Kong are being tear gassed and pepper sprayed. They are protesting pro-democracy rights and simply want their voices to be heard. 

    You can read all about the situation here 

    Too many times peaceful protesters have been victims of police brutality in an attempt to silence them. This needs to stop before some even more serious damage can be done and by that I mean the loss of lives.
