BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — Baton Rouge Police are asking for your help in finding 24-year-old Nassir Rahman.
“I’m hurting, the whole family is hurting,” said Zakiah Rahman, sister. “Come home, bro. Please.”
Nassir hasn’t been seen since February 28th. He was last seen near Sherwood Forest Boulevard wearing a cream-colored wool hoodie and jeans. He’s about five-foot-nine and weighs 175 pounds.
On the night of Nassir’s birthday, he left his home around 9:30 p.m. after working around the house with his father. The family does not know why he left or if he left with someone.
“Since we found out he wasn’t at home we been calling since that Tuesday morning, and it’s just been going straight to voicemail,” said Zakiah.
BRPD Sergeant L’Jean McKneely says the department has gotten multiple reports of Black men going missing in the month of February, but as of right now, that could just be coincidental. He’s asking families to be aware of red flags.
“Try to pay attention to the person’s character and if they’re not doing any things that they would normally do,” he said.
Nassir’s father, Musa Rahman, describes his son as a polite and studious young man. He says Nassir has never left home without telling his family where he was going.
“Something like this is a nightmare, it really is,” said Musa.
This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with more information is urged to call Baton Rouge Police or the family directly at 225-333-9790.
