“Here’s a girl,”  Frank Black, director of search operations for Texas EquuSearch told the Houston Chronicle, “she studied for hundreds and hundreds of hours, and they’ve invested tens of thousands of dollars for her to go through all of this college and medical school and then for her to disappear – she has no history of drug or alcohol abuse. She has no history of mental problems.  There’s really no explanation as to why she up and disappeared.”

 Omidele’s car is a grey Toyota Camry, with Texas license plates BZ2L971.  Keep an eye out for the car and if you see it, please take a photo and let the police know.

If you have any information concerning this case, please call the Houston police at 713-731-5223.
