Missing Person Alert

The case of Aisha Khan is currently classified as a missing person; however, we are using our resources and partnerships in the possibility that this could be an abduction.

On Friday, December 16th, Overland Park police officers responded to a call from KU Edwards Campus officials regarding Ms. Khan. Responding officers learned Ms. Khan is a Johnson County Community College student who is taking classes at the KU campus as part of a cooperative agreement between the two education centers. Her sister reported that she had received a voicemail from Ms. Khan shortly after 11a.m. In her voicemail message, Ms. Khan mentioned an individual had been bothering her. When Ms. Khan’s sister arrived to pick her up, she was no longer there but her belongings were found where she had likely been studying.

We currently have ten detectives assigned to this case, as well as more than 50 officers. We have utilized our Mounted Search and Rescue Unit, which includes civilian volunteers on horseback. We also requested assistance from the FBI, Olathe police department, and the law enforcement agencies of KU and Johnson County Community College.

As our investigation continues, we are following up on various leads, including interviews with family members, friends, KU students and staff members, and construction workers who were working nearby.

Ms. Khan was last seen wearing a yellow and black shirt, black sweat pants, black scarf, black regular length jacket, and a black and white long outer coat.

She is 5’2”, 120 pounds, has dark brown hair, brown eyes, and sometimes wears glasses.

I am asking anyone who may have seen Ms. Khan or anything suspicious on the date in question to contact the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS or 913-344-8703.
