    IN - Ethiopian woman, 28, Bloomington, 10 Feb 2017

    Ethiopian woman visiting Bloomington is missing, police say Indiana Daily Student
    Police received the report at about 11:50 a.m. Saturday from the employer, whose nationality was not listed in the police report, Bloomington Police Department Sgt. Cody Forston said. She told police she and the missing assistant had come to the United States to visit family in Bloomington and were hoping to obtain travel visas while here.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    USA is a big scary place coming from a third world country.

    The employer also noted that during a layover in Washington, D.C., the assistant met several men who were also traveling from Ethiopia and struck up a conversation with them, Forston said. The woman remained in contact with the men via text after they departed, and the employer suggested they may have something to do with her going missing.

    Why would they not release a name or a picture? Bloomington being a college town has people from all over the world, so she wouldn't stand out at all.

    Why the hazy timeline? 2 hours is a pretty large amount of time.

    Were these layover men also heading to Bloomington?

    Missing belongings...voluntarily missing?

    Hoping and praying that she is safe.

    It's almost like they are not trying to find her through the usual methods. No name or pic? I think it is odd that a 26 yr old would bring her "assistant" here with her for them to move and reside here. What kind of business is this that you can just up and leave and bring your employees with you? I am thinking that the police believe there is something foul going on here and are investigating that angle, rather than asking for the publics assistance.

    Maybe they are trying emigrate and thus try to stay under the radar of the Trump anti-immigrant stance.

    They are not trying to stay under the radar at all!
