#FindAisha Day 5:
Today there was another organized search for Aisha Khan who has been missing since December 16.
A message on the Help Find Aisha Khan facebook page served to help coordinate the search. Yet it also expressed concerns about letting speculation detract from the search for the missing Johnson County Community College student.
“Please meet at the Clarion Hotel on 7000 W 108th St (next to the Metcalf 435 overpass) in Overland Park at 1PM,” the message read.
“Also, as stated before, there will be absolutely no speculation, accusation or negative comments tolerated on this page,” the message continued. “It was made strictly to mobilize people in this effort to find Aisha and to garner positivity for the Khan family.
“All negative comments will be deleted and commenters will be banned from the page. Please, let’s remember that we need positivity more than anything at the moment. Thank You.”
Speculation has also been at play in the coverage of Aisha by the media as presented in the segment on Nancy Grace:
Relative says missing college student was not in “forced” marriage
The cousin of a Kansas college student who vanished last Friday said that she was not “forced” into her marriage earlier this year.
“They’ve always liked each other and there was no forced marriage here,” Farouk Sheikh told HLN’s Nancy Grace on Wednesday.
The Facebook page administrator has urged it’s 29,000 supporters to focus on ways of expanding the search and keeping Aisha in the news.
“We have people coming in and out to pick up the new fliers that we are distributing at key locations,” the message read. “Please come to the Clarion Hotel located at 7000 W 108th St (next to the Metcalf 435 overpass) in Overland Park to pick up a stack of fliers plus get assigned a distribution area. We ask for the help of anyone and everyone who is available.”
In addition to flier distribution, the organizers of the search made a plea for needed supplies including: ponchos, gloves, umbrellas, flashlights, staplers, tape, tacks, paper, pencils.
“Anything that you might think we would need would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.”
