A Turn To Old Fashioned Police Work For Missing Student
Leads have thinned into the second and third tier variety as police in Overland Park and Olathe try, for a fourth day, to learn what happened to Aisha Khan. Investigators are questioning classmates, teachers and friends of the 19 year old Johnson County Community College student.
The married student who lives in Olathe with her husband of five months was last believed studying in an outside alcove at the K.U. Edwards Campus where she had a semester final test she never took. She vanished about an hour before the noon class last Friday.
Khan left a message for a sister about a man harassing her.
Khan’s books, iPad and cell phone were found on an alcove bench. If taken by force, a car could not have pulled unnoticed within a hundred feet of the spot. That's the estimation of two city employees who know well the area of 126th and Quivira, the Edwards Campus.
City spokesman Sean Reilly says video cameras are of no help. Police traffic officer Michelle Koos knows where the cameras are, close by. In her words- “the videos that we’ve been able to pull, the traffic cameras( that Reilly referenced) and any other videos, to this point we have not located her in any of those videos.”
Police continue to treat Khan’s situation as an abduction without classic elements of an abduction.
