I pray that Fathima ran away and escaped this fate — unlike Amina and Sarah who ran away and returned at the insistence of their mother, Tissie Said, only to be brutally murdered by their father Yaser Said. I hope Fathima got away, unlike Aqsa Parvez, who stayed with friends only to return home and get murdered by her father.
I pray she escaped Islam. The 16-year-old girl was converting to Christianity from Islam. She lived in a Muslim home.
Reports that saw fit to mention her recent
trips to churches in her community, some of her friends are worried
that her going missing has something to do with her recent conversion. (more here)
Here's the missing persons report at the Ohio Attorney General's webpage.
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Police on Friday were still looking for information about a central Ohio teenager who vanished nearly two weeks ago.
Investigators said there is no evidence that Fathima Rifqa Bary, 16, is a victim of foul play, but they could not rule out that she is not in danger, 10TV's Maureen Kocot reported.
Bary, of New Albany, was last seen on July 19.
The teenager's cell phone has been turned off and her Facebook account deactivated, Kocot reported.
According to police, the girl's friends told detectives that it was possible she ran away because of conflicting religious beliefs in her home.
"If anybody is harboring her they are definitely in violation of at least one misdemeanor charge that I know of, and that's interference of custody," said Columbus police Sgt. Jerry Cupp.
Investigators said Bary is affiliated with two central Ohio churches: one on Cleveland Avenue and the other near the Ohio State University campus.
They also said Bary may have been seen near campus the night she disappeared.
Anyone with information about the case was asked to call Columbus police at 614-645-4545.
