An alert was issued by police yesterday evening saying Yasmin Seweid, 18, had been missing since Wednesday. She was last seen leaving her home in New Hyde Park, Long Island at 8 p.m.
Last week, Seweid spoke out about being harassed at the 23rd Street subway station by three men who tried to rip off her hijab.
Seweid said the men called her a terrorist and tried to grab her hijab saying "take that rag off your head."
Police are still searching for the men who allegedly targeted Seweid.
Police said Seweid was last seen wearing a black jacket, black head scarf, black yoga pants and a blue sweater and was carrying a bag containing clothing.
A thorough check is currently on going.
