A Saudi student has been missing in the US since September 17, according to Los Angeles media that have spoken to his family.

Abdullah Abdullatif Alkadi, 23, has reportedly not had contact since selling his car and posting on Twitter: “God make me happier, for I have suffered. Give me rest and don’t disappoint me, for you are my Lord”.

Police have traced Alkadi’s car and the person who bought it but do not believe there is a connection with his disappearance, Los Angeles Daily News reported.

“We have been in misery for the last two days,” the missing student’s brother Ahmed Alkadi told local media.

“We have tried everything. We called friends. We called relatives. We called everybody we knew and with no news. We are so worried about him.”

He had been studying at California State University at Northridge.

The family and police are using social media to track down Alkadi, while police also have posted a photo and description on its website, stating that he is of Middle Eastern origin, weighs 110 pounds (50kg), has black hair and brown eyes and was wearing a blue shirt and blue jeans at the time of his disappearance.

Fellow Saudi scholarship students in the US also have launched a social media campaign.
