    Mahfuza Rahman, 30, a nurse, was last seen leaving Bellevue Dec. 8. Soon after, her husband, Mohammad Chowdhury, told Rahman’s Bellevue colleagues she had flown back to her native Bangladesh to care for her parents, who were injured in an accident.

    He told their Bronx neighbors the same thing, and later told them he, too, was going to Bangladesh and that he was taking the couple’s daughter with him. “He even asked neighbors to check in on the house.”

    But when Rahman didn’t return to work last week — the time her husband had said she would — concerned Bellevue authorities notified hospital police and the NYPD was called. On Friday, police went to the family’s Bedford Park home on E. 198th St. and started asking questions. On Sunday, they started digging up concrete at the home to look for any evidence of foul play. A police dog was also brought in.

    A police source said there is concern that Rahman was the victim of a crime; investigators find it odd that Rahman never called her employer.

    Following this, because I worked with a man with the same name as the husband. He was in Tarrytown, NY I think, so I'm not sure if it's the same person or not, but interesting.....

    Oh man. What a tragic story. Highly doubt she's alive. Been wrong before. Many times.
    So much time has passed. He has in essence disappeared and gotten rid of evidence. I do wonder if anyone has checked in her family back home. Just to see if by any remote chance she's there. Stranger things have happened.

    It appears he may own their place or part of it. Multiple sites show him as owning that address listed in articles. http://apartable.com/buildings/22-east-198-street-bronx

    And from that, it shows previous areas of residence, one of which makes it appear he's also the person by the same name quoted in this article.

    http://www.newsday.com/news/nation/terror-charges-stun-parents-of-queens-man-1.4130866

    If so, that pins down his approximate age, since it's given in that above article.

    Not sure if CD that narrows things for you at all?

    If that's the case - that Newsday article also being him and that age is close - then it would rule out this being him (b/c of the age being too much higher) https://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/20...stand-worker-at-nyu-subway-station-police-say

    But if not, then that may be of interest.

    This was just on local news. Doesn't sound good.
    LE have evidence that the husband and child traveled out of the country, but, nothing on the wife.

    Thanks! I'm not sure how old he is, as I live in MD and he was one of our server support guys. I only spoke to him over the phone, but I did it often. I'm assuming that unless he worked remotely from the Bronx to Tarrytown, it's probably not the same guy tho.

    Detectives “are looking at a second-story back room” where the NYPD’s canine unit reportedly picked up a scent, and authorities have also dug up concrete outside the home. Police are also interested in several rooms inside the home that were recently painted.

    On Monday, investigators looked through the home with flashlights. It appeared as though the power had been shut off.

    Colleagues became concerned after Rahman failed to show up to work for several days.

    NYPD Detectives said at the time, her husband said Rahman left for Bangladesh to tend to her parents after they were involved in a severe car accident. Except investigators say that never happened.

    Rahman's parents said they were fine and never in an accident. Neither Rahman's US or Bangladeshi passports were used in recent months. Detectives were never able to question Chowdhury on that version of events because he left for Bangladesh with the couple's 9-year-old daughter just days later.

    Rahman's Hunter College student ID card was swiped at the school on December 9th, one day after Bellevue Hospital police visited her home. Investigators have not yet confirmed, however, if the ID was swiped by Rahman herself.

    Police do have a contact number for Chowdhury in Bangladesh but have not been able to reach him or speak to him. They need to speak to him to clarify some of the gaps in the investigation and to track down his wife.

    Chowdhury indicated to the Bangladeshi Consulate that he was returning to the U.S. February 2nd, but changed his return date to May 2nd.

    The Bronx husband who flew to Bangladesh after his nurse wife disappeared is not answering calls from the NYPD — and he told her parents a story that contradicts what he initially told her co-workers.

    "His story to them was that he went to look for her [BECAUSE] she had gone missing," said Bronx detectives. "So that story runs counter to what he told the hospital police."

    The husband, meanwhile, still hasn't spoken to police since arriving in Bangladesh after he and the couple's 9-year-old daughter left New York on Dec. 14 aboard an Arab Emirates flight and grabbed a connecting flight in Dubai.

    "We haven't contacted him yet," police said. "He's not picked up his phone."

    Rahman gave her travel agent a return date of Feb. 2, then later changed that to May 2. The same agent, and immigration authorities, police said, have no record of Rahman leaving the United States.

    Concern about Rahman's whereabouts started on Dec. 14.

    That's when two hospital cops went to the couple's Kingsbridge Heights home, where Chowdhury told them about the "accident." The cops looked around the home, saw nothing unusual and left after taking a picture of his license so they could confirm he was who he stated.

    Chowdhury left for Bangladesh later the same day.

    I hope they find her body, if she was indeed a victim of murder as it appears to be the case. Who knows what Bangladesh's policy is about returning suspects to the USA?
