Missing BX nurse remains mystery for police, community

Members of the Bangladeshi community in Bedford Park rallied in front of the now-vacant home of a nurse who was last seen on Dec. 9.



Police say 30-year-old Mahfuza Rahman was last seen leaving Hunter College in Manhattan. They say her husband told Bellevue Hospital that his wife had to travel back to Bangladesh for a family emergency, but she never returned. Her coworkers then reported her missing.



Police say after giving them inconsistent information, Rahman's husband traveled to Bangladesh with their daughter and has been ignoring calls from the NYPD.



The NYPD says she has no relatives in the United States. They also say they are working on getting phone and credit cards to track their whereabouts



The NYPD is investigating Rahman's disappearance as a homicide. Just last weekend, police brought in cadaver dogs to the now-vacant residence but turned up nothing.
