Police: No sign of missing Kansas college student

Monday, December 19, 2011 | 9:45 p.m. CST

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Police in northeastern Kansas said they're no closer to learning what happened to a 19-year-old student who disappeared last week.

Aisha Khan studies at Johnson County Community College. She called her sister Friday from the University of Kansas' Edwards Campus saying she was running from a drunken stranger who harassed her while she studied outdoors.

The Kansas City Star reported that Overland Park Police Chief John Douglass said Monday that the case is being treated as an abduction. The chief said dozens of investigators have searched nearby land and canvassed every house within a mile of the campus.

The New York-born Khan got married July 31. Police say they have no reason to suspect her husband, who pleaded Monday for his wife to be found.
