The mother still longs for answers in the case of the Edmonton woman who disappeared 4 years ago – Edmonton

It’s been four years since an Edmonton woman disappeared without a trace, and despite the odds, Nadia Atwi’s mother still hopes she’ll return home.


Salwa Atwi said she still clearly remembers the day her daughter was reported missing.

“She didn’t text me like she usually does. So I called and no one answered,” Salwa said. “So I went to her house and I knocked on the door. Her husband answered. He said she left.”

Nadia is a kindergarten teacher at a private school in south Edmonton. But on December 8, 2017, she didn’t show up for work.

“She’s never done it before, so it’s out of character,” Salwa explains.

Nadia Atwi has been missing for 4 years.


Nadia’s car was found in Rundle Park. Family, friends and volunteers helped search the area.

“A lot of people went there and we looked, and we were told that the police had searched the area, the sky, the ground,” Salwa said.

But they found nothing. Four years later, Nadia’s two-year-old son is now six.

She missed birthdays, important events, weddings and the birth of children in her large family.

Salwa said she couldn’t give up her daughter.

“The fact that you have a missing child will always come to you. It’s in your mind, in your heart,” she said.

“Until we have a clear and specific answer, we can’t give up.”

She says she prays for answers every day. Salwa even posted posters on her house and garage, in case someone might recognize Nadia and remember something.

“Someone may have seen something that morning, heard something. Please, I keep begging someone to come forward and help us solve this mystery.”

Salwa knows the odds are not good.

“After so long, the chances of finding her alive are slim. But you know, you can’t lose hope. ”

On Wednesday, it said it had no updates on the case but investigators continued to contact Atwis, most recently three weeks ago.

There’s still a reward for getting Nadia home safely.

And while there are no further search plans, if people want to help, Salwa says there’s one thing she needs.

“All I ask is prayer, because what can we do at this time?” she speaks.
