Aisha Khan’s story is making its way into the national media. Family members and their supporters have done an excellent job of taking this to a national level. The more I hear people talk about Aisha, the more I learn how active and well-respected her family is in the community.
This was evidenced by a woman who came into the Billington Library today. She regularly studied with Aisha and Aisha’s friends in the JCCC library. The woman said she just wanted to come back to the place where she met Aisha.

Overland Park Police department held a 3 pm press conference to discuss the disappearance of Aisha Khan, a Johnson County Community College student who has been missing since Friday.
Chief John Douglas said there is no evidence that Aishsa’s disappearance is an abduction. He also said there is no evidence that Aisha left on her own. Right now they are not ruling anything out.
Construction workers working last Friday at the University of Kansas’ Edwards Campus, where Aisha disappeared, reported seeing someone who looked like the victim walking away from the area. Aisha was taking classes that met on KU’s Edwards Campus.
Aisha’s parents addressed the media asking for the safe return of their daughter and to be kept in everyone’s prayers.
Douglas said four FBI agents have joined the investigation logging more than 400 hours on the case so far.
He added that Aisha’s husband is not considered a suspect nor have there been reports of suspicious vehicles in the area. Investigators are analyzing the voice message she left for clues.
“One of our own is missing,” Douglas said. “In case she’s in trouble, we want to find her.” Continue reading

Posted Friday afternoon on the Facebook Page, Help Find Aisha Khan:
WHAT WE KNOW (at this point):
Apparently a man approached Aisha shortly before noon Friday, Dec. 16 outside the main KU Edwards Campus building and proceeded to harass her. She called and left her cousin a voice mail saying a man (whom she believed was drunk) was being inappropriate with her and that she didn’t feel comfortable. When her cousin went to the location where she stated she was in the voice mail, she found Aisha’s belongings, including her cell phone, but she was no where to be found.
Police spent Friday interviewing family and friends and investigating any leads. Last information received from a family member was that the police spoke to landscapers who were working on a nearby construction site and they said they may have seen a woman who matched Aisha’s description walking around Pflumm Rd. Nothing has been confirmed.
Please keep checking this page for latest updates on possible mass search attempts.
If you know anyone that was on the KUE campus on Friday please ask them if they saw Aisha/communicated with her at all.
Till then, please pray for Aisha, her family, and share this page with friends, family and the greater Kansas City community. Continue reading
