Police are continuing to investigate the disappearance of Rusholme mom Hadeer Jamil Alonazi.
Earlier this month, officers from GMP’s Major Incident Team announced a murder investigation after enquiries led them to believe Hadeer – who is in her 20s – may not be alive.
As part of their appeal for information, they’ve now released another photo of Hadeer that was taken when she arrived in the UK in November 2018.
She’d travelled to the UK from Greece to live with some family in the Rusholme area but last month, was reported missing.
When officers launched their initial investigation, they established that she’d not been seen for some time prior to the report coming in so could not trace any of her movements.
Detective Chief Inspector Liz Hopkinson, who is leading the investigation from the Major Incident Team, said: “This is a really unusual set of circumstances as usually, when someone has gone missing, we’re able to find out when they’d last used their mobile phone or when they’d last turned up at work but unfortunately, we don’t have any record of either for Hadeer.”
Enquiries carried out by specialist officers have included examination of CCTV in the area where she lives as well as speaking to people as witnesses but this has not yet helped officers find out what exactly happened to her.
The whereabouts of her six-year-old daughter were unknown at the time Hadeer was reported missing but she has since been found safe and well.
Officers are appealing directly to the public for information and assure them that their information can be dealt with in confidence.
DCI Hopkinson, added: “Despite working around the clock on this throughout the month, we’ve sadly not been able to find any proof that Hadeer is alive and as more time passes, our hypothesis that she has come to harm becomes stronger and stronger.
“We are still trying to build a fuller profile of Hadeer and the life that she led so we need any information that people have to be passed on to us urgently.
“I understand that people may not want to speak to us and that it can be scary knowing that we’re dealing with a murder investigation but I cannot stress the importance of them doing so.
“There are a number of ways people can pass on information to us and you can do this anonymously.
“All the information that is passed onto us will be dealt with in the strictest of confidence.
“I cannot imagine the torment her daughter faces of not knowing what has happened to her mum. She’s the reason why we need anyone who knows anything, no matter what it is, to get in touch with us.”
Two men were previously arrested in connection with the investigation but remain on bail pending further enquiries.
