Kuwaiti teen missing in the US since Thursday

July 17, 2010


Kuwaiti embassy in Washington on Saturday confirmed that a Kuwaiti teen has been missing for two days in Florida.

The embassy said that it was exerting outstanding efforts and coordinating with the authorities in Kissimmee, Florida, where the 15-year-old girl went missing and in North Platte, Nebraska, where she is believed to have gone. The embassy has already contacted Kuwaiti students in Nebraska to find out whether they had any idea about where the 15-year-old student might be.

The Kuwaiti foreign ministry and the US state department have been alerted about the teen’s disappearance, the embassy said.

According to a release by the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department, Florida authorities have alerted the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office of a missing teen that they believe may be in North Platte.

“Kuwait citizen Eman Mohammad and her family were vacationing in Kissimmee, Florida when Eman was left alone at the house where they were staying. Upon her family’s return, Eman was missing,” the police said.

Kissimmee Law Enforcement Officials tracked Eman to a local bus station where she boarded a bus for Omaha, Nebraska, and requested a ticket to North Platte.

“She told bus terminal employees that she has family in North Platte and the family says they have no family or friends in the United States.”

The police said there was great concern over the young girl’s disappearance because it is feared that Eman travelled to North Platte to meet people with whom she had been speaking online.

“Eman speaks very good English, but has an accent,” the police said.

Eman is 5’4″ tall, has short black hair and brown eyes. Her last known clothing is unknown at this time, the police said.
