Missing nursing student turned 19 today

ST. PETERS, Mo. - There are new clues in disappearance of a St. Peters nursing student. Friends who were the last ones to talk with the young woman before she went missing have come forward.

Deputies with the St. Charles County Sheriff's Office say leads are trickling in and they are tracking down every one of them.

Tuesday is Bahia's 19th birthday, but there is no celebrating in her home. Pictures from one year ago show a happy teenager turning 18.

Bahia Bisharat's mother, Munira Qader, says they celebrated with family at home and she would give anything to be celebrating with her daughter this year.

"She's supposed to be 19 today, and who knows maybe she's dead today, maybe the killed her today," said Qader.

Bahia went missing last Wednesday. She was last seen at a St. Charles Community College location in Dardenne Prairie, where she attends nursing school. Deputies say they talked to one of Bahia's classmates, who said Bahia looked sick and nervous and she kept looking at the door, before she went missing.

Qader believes her daughter was kidnapped, but is desperate to hear from her.

"If she, she went with someone, I don't care, I care about my daughter, if she's okay, just let us know she's okay and we will leave her alone," she said.

Bahia's car was found in the school's parking lot, with her belongings inside and a note that read "goodbye." Deputies say there are no clues of an abduction or foul play.

She went missing just three days before her nursing graduation, her family still went, hoping she would show up.

"Everybody passed wearing their white scrubs and they are happy and she's not there, she's not with them," she said.

Tips have come in of sightings of the teen from central Missouri, south St. Louis County and St. Peters. Qader doesn't believe these tips will lead them to her daughter.

"No hope no more, I'm not having no hope anymore to be honest with you," she said.
