WAVERLY (KWWL) - A Wartburg student who had gone missing after fall break has turned up in a Chicago jail.

Selamou Ahmed, 24, has been in the Cook County Jail on charges of burglary since Oct. 24, around two days after he was last seen on the Wartburg College campus in Waverly.

Ahmed's bail is set at $25,000. His next court date is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 13.

PREVIOUS STORY:

While hundreds of students returned to the Wartburg College campus after fall break, Selamou Mohamed Ahmed is still nowhere to be found.

John Myers, director of campus security says they filed the missing person's report on Halloween, but determined he left campus around Oct. 22. He says it wasn't Mohamed Ahmed's roommate who let them know he was missing -- it was actually his dad."Because he hadn't heard from him for several days," said Myers.

Security along with the Waverly Police Department are now investigating, interviewing his roommate and other friends.

"Basically the last time they saw him. Not too much. He was pretty quiet, didn't show any indication of where he would go, and so we're kind of lost there," said Myers.

Myers says they don't believe Muhamed Ahmed is in town anymore, but they say he didn't have a car, so he would have needed a ride to go anywhere.

He says they don't believe foul play is involved, but it's something that goes through their mind when something like this happens.

"Always when you don't know where somebody is, you know the whole spectrum. They don't want to be here or you know something bad happened. But there's no indication of that," said Myers.

Myers says the college is staying in contact with Muhamed Ahmed's family.

If you have any information about his whereabouts, contact Waverly Police or Wartburg College security.
