18-year-old Carleton University student missing...
Nadia Kajouji, an 18-year-old public affairs student attending Ottawa's Carleton University has been missing since March 9th. Her parents, understandably, are frantic and say "something really bad happened."
Response from the Ottawa Police? They say foul play is not suspected at this time. "There's no exact place to search . . . she just hasn't returned home," (said) Const. Alain Boucher of the Ottawa Police Service.
Other news reports say the police have done a perimeter search of the area, taken her computer, checked phone records and interviewed friends. There's no sign of Nadia.
According to those who knew her, Nadia seemed to be depressed lately but her family says the disappearance is entirely out of character for her.
Hopefully, there will be a happy ending to the disappearance of this student. But history suggests otherwise. And her grief-stricken father, Mohamed Kajouji, says tearfully, "In my heart, I think my daughter is dead. I really do. I'm holding out hope, but my hope is limited. "
