Search of a Missing Somali Woman Continues in and Around Mississippi River

By: Abdirahman Aynte

Minneapolis police are searching a Somali woman, whose disappearance circumstances raised more questions than answers, in and around the Mississippi river for several days.

Sudi Bashir Abdi, a 26-year-old medical student at Hofstra University in New York was last seen on the Washington Avenue bridge around 3:00 a.m. Tuesday morning when someone called the police about a woman going into the river.

Police are not calling the incident a foul play, but they also stopped short of calling it a suicide. People who have known Abdi are not convinced that she was the type of person who would abruptly end her life like that. They fear that she might have been forced into the water.

Divers using a sonar-enabled boat searched beneath the water Wednesday and Thursday with no luck. Several dozen Somali volunteers also searched along the shoreline.

“We need to find her as soon as possible,” said Osman Abdulle, her brother.

Abdi graduated from St. Thomas University before she was accepted at Hofstra medical school in New York. Family and friends describe her as a quite person who had so many ambitions in life.

Though not delving into details, family members say that she was haggard and stressed with school. She flew to Minneapolis Monday night to spend time with the family.

A few hours after bedtime, the family noticed that she was missing out of her room and began frantically searching for her. A pair of a shoe, thought to be Abdi’s, was later discovered near the river. It’s the only clue to the case.

Police and volunteers are planning to continue searching until she’s discovered.

Anyone with information about the case should call Minneapolis Police Department at (612) 673-5701

IF YOU HAVE INFORMATION ABOUT SUDI BASHIR ABDI, PLEASE CALL MINNEAPOLIS POLICE DEPARTMENT AT (612) 673-5701 OR (612)868-8831 OR (612)670-4541
