Saima Ahmed

Saima Ahmed

Episode Summary

Following us attending CrimeCon in London, where we attended many sessions, including one called The Colour of Missing, where we heard Evidence Joel talk about her 19 year old son Richard Okorogheye going missing and her subsequent fight to get the police to recognise that Richard was in fact a high risk missing person, not a low risk as they had categorised it, led us to the case of Saima Ahmed, who went missing in August 2015. It appears that sadly Saima’s case very much mirrors Richard’s, indicating that there are still lessons that need to be learnt.
