Aisha Khan

Police Reasoning Detailed In Missing Woman-Found

Dec 22, 2011

Overland Park, Kansas  police today are revealing more about the odd and unexplained disappearance of  junior college student Aisha Khan and why there will be no criminal charges.

When the 19 year old woman seemed to vanish from the Edwards Campus of  K.U. last  Friday, Dec. 16th,  police became involved in Olathe, where she lived,  and Overland Park,  where she attended classes.

The full-scale search over a span of five days treated Khan's disappearance as if it was an abduction,  although  classified as a missing person.  Overland Park Police were clear about that.
