Aimee Angle-Zahn, 34, from Wixom, MI, but living in New York City while attending her fourth year as a medical student, is missing after being forcibly thrown out of her apartment there. According to a report from her mother,Debbie Angle, who spoke to Aimee afterwards, the landlord hit her with a broom and kept her cell phone. On that same cell phone the landlord called Aimee's parents demanding money for her back rent.
Aimee proceeded to email her parents after that incident, telling them she was looking for a place to stay, carrying her belongings with her. Her parents then booked her a hotel room near LaGuardia Airport and purchased a ticket for her to return to Michigan. Aimee never checked in to the hotel room, and has not been seen or heard from since Thursday, November 11. Her father,Allen Angle, flew to New York City on Friday to search for his daughter and was refused help by the police there. The Wixam, MI police are now in charge of the case.
According to the Detroit Free Press:
"His daughter had a Michigan driver’s license, so New York City police said they could not investigate her disappearance and that it was up to Michigan authorities."
Aimee is the mother of an 8 year old daughter with whom she is said to communicate by phone every day. There have been no phone calls since Wednesday and the grandparents are anxious about what to tell their granddaughter why her mother hasn't called.
Described as extremely brilliant, Aimee has had many academic accomplishments, however, according to her mother, is "clueless" in the world and sometimes absent minded. Suffering from epilepsy, the family fears Aimee may have had a seizure while walking the dangerous streets of New York City. In the event that's true, their hope is she will be found in one of the hospitals, safe.
