Family pleads for missing York U student to come home

The family of a York University student who vanished last week is pleading for her to come home.

Amina Lawal, 19, was last seen on Friday in the Kingston Road and Beechgrove Drive area.

Her mother, Funmi Odusola, said the last time she spoke with her daughter was around 6:30 p.m. on the day she went missing, when the girl told her she was on her way home from school.

“She told me she had a group meeting at school. She called me around 6:30 to say she was on her way back. That was the last time…,” Odusola said. “She’s a good girl, she works so hard, she’s very, very active…. Please come home.”

Lawal is described as black, five-foot-two-inches tall, 99 pounds with a thin build and long black braided hair.

Friends have taken to social media to help search for Lawal with the hashtag #HelpFindAmina.

Police said foul play is not suspected.
