Police Search For Missing 10-Year-Old Girl

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minneapolis Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating a 10-year-old girl who was last seen Sunday morning.

Police say the girl was last seen near Lake Street and Pillsbury Avenue South around 10 a.m. Sunday.

Officers say the girl, Namo Abdinur Ahmed, was getting out of a car in the parking lot with her mother and siblings and was walking ahead of them to a nearby location for religious classes.

Police were called after it was reported that the girl never made it to class.

Police have been going door-to-door to spread the word of the missing girl and are using a canine to try and track where she might have gone.

So far, none of these efforts have turned up any leads.

Namo, who also goes by Naimo or Nimo, is about 4-foot-8 to 4-foot-10 with a lighter build, medium brown complexion and was last seen wearing a full length black dress, pink shoes, a dark-colored head covering and carrying a purple or pink backpack.

Anyone with information about Namo’s whereabouts should call 911 in the city of Minneapolis, or 612-673-2345 from outside the city.

    Really? That’s the best you could come up with? If you’re going to be an ignorant a** about this I would think you could at least make it about terrorism or something. People like you are what is wrong with this country. I have Muslim friends and they are not forced to wear the hijab. One of them has eaten pork, and they question things all the time. Islam is not evil, or restrictive like you idiots may think. At least know something before you start running your mouth.

    What an ignorant comment!

    The Census Bureau estimated in October 2011 that there were more than 32,000 people of Somali ancestry in Minnesota (largest in America). Can you provide me with one act of so-called honor killings taking place amongst this community in Minnesota? Let me guess your bright mind figures this is the first one?

    Muslim honor killings are a myth and it does not happen. It is a culture issue – occurring in the Middle East and some other parts of Asia. Where people are concerned with what their family and community will think and not God.

    In fact, Indonesia has the largest Muslim population! Do we hear news coming from there?

    I apologize for disrupting this thread as I cannot imagine the pain this young girl’s family is going through. I’ll keep her in my prayers and hope for her safe return.

      @Brson No such thiong as honor killing in America? Wow what are you smoking? I know what it is, Denial?

      BS! The Census Bureau has no idea how many Somalians are in MN dumb as*. There is no where on the ballots to mark as being Somalian! Right now you have at least 35% of St Cloud as Somalians….you have at least 100,000 in Mpls and St Paul…then you haveRochester…..you are looking at…at least 250,000 in MN alone which of couse has the largest Smelli populaiton on the Country. Your a moron….

      • Bryson

        Of course the Census Bureau has no idea how many, but genius Kevin does right?

        You dumb idiot there aren’t even 100,000 Somalis in America.

        Can you you provide even one credible source that says Mpls has those many Somalis???

        Honestly you deserve no response because your numbers are outrageous.

      2 WERE convicted of financing TERRORISM while DISRESPECTING the court during their trials. It has been CONFIRMED two Somali men left this country and detonated themselves on people in Somalia after having a “western” lifestyle. This community needs to open up a bit.

  • billy

    hmmm, these foreigner’s come over here from 3’rd world countries with their little kids who speak no english, what a great opportunity for these american pedophiles to abduct these young foreign children and molest them…….

  • jeff

    Last seen@ 10am today. By 3pm, WCCO already has a story on it. WCCO sure is quick to act when it makes them look good to the Somali community. Same goes for the police. Guaranteed that there is special treatment going on.

  • Jackie Du Charme

    There are some things missing in this story. No one just disappears.
    How far behind were her family? HOw long does it take to get out of a vehicle and walk to destination not far away.
    It does’t make sense to me. Maybe to others it does.

    I just can’t even begin to understand the the level of hate and absolute compound ignorance that it takes to see the victim and her family here as the other and less than human. With the many many many ills that our country has to offer here and abroad you still think that somehow might makes you right , or your supposed forwardness is indeed forward, better look again people American people are entering the religion of Islam in droves, I would start to wonder why is that, if this religion is indeed everything that I have been led to believe and espouse on the rest of the world why are more and more absolutely inteligent educated westerners from all over the world joining it’s ranks. The lie can only stand up for so long and maybe you believe in Buddhism you should worry about the Karma coming back to you for your Ill thoughts you put out there today.

    Exactly one little girl is missing in our city. D-bags A, B, and C here must be thankful they don’t have to deal with it or care, and instead can focus on making bigoted (drunk?) comments on a local news site. Citizens and patriots, to be sure.

  • sweatshirt

    Hard to tell, maybe try posting a picture without that hoodie on her head.

  • Mom of 2

    Who cares what race, sex , religion or where this child descends from , she is a missing child !!!! Instead of showing ignorance why not make ourselves all useful and make sure this little girl gets back to her family !!!!!! My heart goes out to the family of this child as it does to any family with a lost child . A lost child is a lost child that is the bottom line !!!!!
