Edmonton police are asking for public assistance to find a woman last seen in northeast Edmonton Friday.
Nadia Atwi, 32, was last seen in the area of 48 Street and 146 Avenue at approximately 6:30 a.m. Police said she may be in or near Rundle Park – where her vehicle and personal belongings were found Friday afternoon.
Atwi, a teacher and mother, is described as Lebanese, 170-180 pounds and 5-foot-8 with dark brown hair, brown eyes and last seen wearing dark clothing. She may also be wearing a hijab and one or no shoes, EPS said.
Atwi requires medical attention and may get confused when approached, police said.
“Unfortunately my wife has bipolar disorder,” Ali Fneich, Atwi’s husband, told CTV News. “I know she has not been on her meds for the last two days.”
Atwi’s family members have spent all weekend handing out missing posters and helping police search for her.
“We’re posting flyers on each bus station on commercial shops. We go street by street, door by door,” Fneich said. “We already scanned the whole Rundle Park area, Gold Park, and the Tiger Park area.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 780-423-4567. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
