ST. CHARLES, MO (KTVI) – The 19-year-old nursing student who seemingly vanished from a satellite campus of St. Charles Community College last month has been found safe. But there are still plenty of questions about the case of Bahia Bisharat, many of which will likely not be answered.

Deputies have been searching for the young woman since March 19th. Her family was vocal publicly in their fears she had been kidnapped. Deputies now say she simply left, and did so on her own. She was located by St. Charles’ cyber crimes unit. They found a user name on a website and though it might be her.

“It turns out it was her and we felt comfortable she left on her own accord, that she wasn’t in harm’s way and she just decided to leave,” sheriff’s department spokesman Lt. Dave Tiefenbrunn said.

She was hesitant to communicate with investigators, but agreed to take part in a video chat where they could see her and determine she was healthy and that no crime had been committed. But she would not tell them where she was.

“No, and we weren’t pressing the issue. She’s an adult. Our main concern with the investigation is to establish her safety and there’s no criminal activity involved. And we feel confident that’s the case.”

During the time she was missing, her family organized search parties and spoke often through reporters to the person or people she said she was “100% positive” had kidnapped her daughter.

Reached by phone Monday, Munira Quader declined to be interviewed, saying only, “She’s safe, and that’s what we care about.”

St. Charles Community College officials were faced with headlines of a possible kidnapping from a campus on their watch. They believed all along that was not the case, and that has now been proven, but it didn’t make their position any easier while Bisharat was missing.

“It is sometimes unrattling when someone perceives that we’re not as safe as we really are, and that was a little unnerving at times,” Campus Police Chief Bob Ronkoski said.

As to the “why” in all this, Ronkoski doesn’t seem worried about whether anyone will ever find out.

“I believe that’s a personal thing between her and her family and that does not involve us. What involves us is we did not have an incident on our campus and she is safe.”
