Missing Georgia woman, Wazineh Suleiman, Palestinian-American mother of five young children who disappeared nearly a week ago, is alive and well. Sources told ABC News that Wazineh Suleiman is afraid of her husband and police have agreed not to tell the husband, Abed Suleiman, of her location.
ABC NEWS — Millsap said that no criminal charges will be filed in the case. (Not until the husband finds her and kills her) The sheriff declined to answer questions, but said, “Anything that’s going on in her residence is her business and her husband’s business. Why she left is her business, not ours. Our main concern was to make sure she is safe.”
Wazineh Suleiman’s husband, Abed, and her parents briefly appeared at the press conference, but left before it started. They merely said that she was safe. Abed Suleiman later said as he returned home that he would talk to the press after he is reunited with his wife. The woman’s mother said she had not yet spoken with her daughter.
Abed Suleiman had said that his wife left Friday night to rent a movie from Walmart and never returned.
Surveillance video showed that Wazineh Suleiman never entered the Walmart. Abed Suleiman had just returned from a canceled hunting trip in Kentucky with his friend Jason Seritt when he found his wife had disappeared.
Before Wazineh Suleiman surfaced, her husband, Abed Suleiman, was questioned for three hours Wednesday night by police. “I was a suspect … and they wanted to totally rule me out. They kind of already did that. They just wanted to iron out all the wrinkles and they did that,” Abed Suleiman told ABC Affiliate WSBTV as he left the sheriff’s office Wednesday night.
Police received a phone call from a sheriff in another part of the state around midnight alerting them that Wazineh Suleiman was safe. Wazineh Suleiman’s friend contacted her husband to let him know that she was alive and safe, police said. The identity of that friend has not been revealed.
Abed Suleiman’s hunting buddy, Jason Seritt, said, “They seemed happy every time I was around them,” Seritt said. “He’s a real good guy. He’d give anybody the shirt off their back. He’d give her any and everything that she wanted.” (Sure he did, that’s why she doesn’t want him to know where she is)
Abed and Wazineh Suleiman exchanged heated text messages following her disappearance. In the text messages, Wazineh Suleiman cursed at her husband and threatened to throw the phone out the window, Abed Suleiman said. “There were two text messages where there was profanity used. We are very religious, very religious…Wazineh would never, ever, ever…talk to me like that or text me like that. She never has and I was saying something is not right,” Abed Suleiman said Wednesday.
Abed Suleiman told ABC News Wednesday that he treated his wife like a queen. “My wife is my life,” he said. “Anybody that know us, a lot of people look at us and say these guys are a perfect couple and a perfect family.” (BwaHahahahahaha!)
Wazineh Suleiman is a devout Muslim who usually wears a head scarf. Her husband has used images of her with no headscarf in missing person posters, hoping someone will recognize her. He said she would not have left on her own. The sheriff also doubted that she was a runaway, saying he doubted she left on her own.
