SOUTH BEND, Ind.—The family of missing 15-year-old Huda Roushdy on Monday made a plea to the community to help find her.
Huda’s father, Gasser, thanked the community and police for their continued efforts to find the missing teen, who was last seen on Sunday, October 4 in South Bend in the 1300 block of Brummit Lane around 8 p.m.
“I’m asking everyone to keep looking, to intensify the search for her, to share on social media,” Gasser Roushdy said.
During a press conference outside of the County-City Building, Gasser Roushdy pleaded with local business owners to look at their existing surveillance footage from two to three weeks ago and report it to police if they see anything pertaining to Huda.

Huda’s father ended the press conference with a plea directly to his daughter.
“If you are hearing me, if you are watching me, we all love you. We all miss you. Please call us, please contact us if you can. Your mother is feeling very bad, she’s sick. Please call us when you have the chance,” Gasser Roushdy said.
Huda takes medication daily and police said they are concerned for her well-being.
