Sister of missing Newport teenager Nida Ul-Naseer makes emotional appeal for her return

THE sister of missing Newport teenager Nida Ul-Naseer has made an emotional appeal for her to come home, almost a week after she went missing.

Speaking at a press conference this afternoon, Naila Anwar tearfully appealed for her 18-year-old sister, or anyone who has any information about her sister, to come forward.

Gwent Police say they believe Miss Ul-Naseer, from Pillgwenlly, may have had an argument at her Linton Street home shortly before she went missing, which could have upset her.

Speaking at Gwent police headquarters in Croesyceiliog, Mrs Anwar said: “We miss Nida desperately. We just want to tell her she’s not in trouble. We all love her, we love you Nida. Just come home.

“We are all worried about her and her condition. What is most worrying is that she has missed mum’s birthday, which is extremely unlike her.”

Miss Ul-Naseer was reported as missing on Saturday, December 28. She is of Asian-Pakistani appearance and has long dark hair.

She was last seen at the address at around 8pm, before she left to put out bins.

The former Duffryn High School student was last known to be wearing blue jeans and a black top and is also described as slim and being five feet three inches tall.

On New Years Day, more than 40 specially-trained search officers with the assistance of dogs and horses undertook enquiries in numerous areas of Newport, while local officers distributed leaflets and conducted house to house enquiries.

Posters appealing for information about Miss Ul-Naseer have been translated into Urdu and distributed among Maindee’s Asian community as well as in Pill.

Police are particularly concerned for the teenager because she has not taken her medication with her and is likely to become anaemic without it.

On Thursday, the search moved to Stephenson Street Industrial Estate in Lliswerry.

Assistant chief constable Paul Symes said: “We believe that she had a verbal disagreement within the home which possibly could have upset her and led to her leaving. There is nothing to account for her disappearance.

“Whilst we are pursuing a number of lines of enquiry, there is no information at this stage to suggest that she was picked up in a vehicle at all.”

Pill councillor, Ibrahim Hayat, said: “I just can’t believe something like this has happened in our community.”

If anyone has any information that could help, they are asked to call 101 and quote log number 448 28/12/13.

I think some of this is down to muliculturism. Children born in the UK with migrant parents end up confused, It applies particularly to many Asian migrant who come from a culture very different to that of the British culture. At home they are being bought up with a traditional Asian culture and the Schools & Government are telling them they are Asian yet they are exposed to a British culture so they are being pulled in two different directions. It can result in arguments at home and some go down the extremism route and some end up confused and have mental issues and some run away

You cannot be two different cultures and there lies the problem in my view

Unfortunately, the Qur'an instructs them in the way of life for them, the young find it hard to live a 7th Century Ideology when all around them they live in a modern society where girls have free choices to issues that are theirs, and only theirs to make, once eighteen in this Country your free to make your own way in life, perhaps that's where the problems can start, our way or your way, I know we had some problems with ours....
