— Police in northeastern Kansas say they’re no closer to learning what happened to a 19-year-old student who disappeared last week.

A flier posted on a Facebook page dedicated to finding Aisha Khan, a 19-year-old Johnson County Community College student who disappeared from the Kansas University Edwards Campus.

A flier posted on a Facebook page dedicated to finding Aisha Khan, a 19-year-old Johnson County Community College student who disappeared from the Kansas University Edwards Campus.

Aisha Khan studies at Johnson County Community College. She called her sister Friday from the University of Kansas’ Edwards Campus saying she was running from a drunken stranger who harassed her while she studied outdoors.

The Kansas City Star reports that Overland Park Police Chief John Douglass told a news conference Monday the case is being treated as an abduction. The chief says dozens of investigators have searched nearby land and canvassed every house within a mile of the campus.

The New York-born Khan got married July 31. Police say they have no reason to suspect her husband, who pleaded Monday for his wife to be found.

Khan's family have distributed fliers, set up a Facebook page and offered a $10,000 reward for any tips that lead to her whereabouts.

Just heard on NPR that eyewitnesses saw someone of the same description walking away from the campus alone after the phone call.

I hope she is found alive and well, regardless of what the real story is.

if you read at the Facebook page, you see that the drunk dude might've caused her to run a bit, perhaps without her stuff.

plus, the eye witness description was a bit vague.

we tend to put more faith into eye witness info than we should.

Sounds like someone may have gotten married a little too soon. To me, this seems like a case where she has a boyfriend this soon after getting married, not her husband, and possibly ran off with him. Staged it to sound like an abduction so she wouldn't get in trouble, or sound like anything was her fault.

Yes, I've been hearing that report too. I have to say I really hope she did walk off, and that she'll come home soon. In another story someone commented that they couldn't understand why no one saw anything with all the construction going on in the area. In fact, though, it was construction workers who saw someone fitting her description walking away alone.

The OPPD chief also stated that they're treating this as an abduction, and the FBI is involved.

CBS and ABC have given this national media coverage too.

I hope she is found safe soon, no matter what circumstances.

I hope she comes home safe and left the area on her own for her own reasons. However if this is not the case there is a very real lesson to learn here, dial 911. You should not be calling friends or relatives before 911 every second is important!
