Aisha Khan Case Reveals Disturbing Truth About 'Stranger Danger'

Aisha Khan is 19-years-old. She is not a small child and she can fend for herself. But all the same, the young college student is currently missing and her friends and family seem to believe it relates to an altercation the young woman had with a drunken stranger.

Khan, a 19-year-old married college student at The University of Kansas called her sister quite distraught. She left a voicemail saying she had hit a drunk man who tried to kiss her. When her sister came to help her, Khan was nowhere to be found. Her sister found only her backpack and her cell phone. 

The family has offered a $10,000 reward for information, though the police are not yet treating it as an abduction. Still, it sounds a lot like one and that fact is deeply disturbing.

Stranger abductions are supposed to be rare. They are supposed to be the anomaly, so when there is a story where a stranger randomly finds someone and takes them, it does make a person ill at ease. After all, it could be anyone.

The Khan family is desperate to find Aisha and obviously, one hopes only for the best, but the statistics don't look good. Why would this man have taken her? There is no indication that she left voluntarily, otherwise, why would she have called her sister? Why would she have sounded so scared?

The police are obviously being cautious, but nothing about this story sounds like she left on her own volition. "There's a creepy guy that just came up to me, and he was harassing me," Aisha wrote in a text message, according to Faiza Khan, her older sister.

To get the man to back off, Khan slapped him. Does that sound like a woman who was ready to leave her family and friends behind?

As of now, there is a Facebook group dedicated to the search. Khan is described as 5 feet 2 inches tall, 120 pounds with dark brown hair, brown eyes, and glasses. There is also a Twitter feed following the search for Khan.

Her family is offering a $10,000 reward for any information leading to Khan's safe recovery.

Though it serves as a reminder that "stranger danger" is alive and well whether you are 4 or 40, let's hope her family gets good news and this is not a random act of violence. Let's hope this story has a happy ending.
