The family of a student from Leeds who has been missing for a week say they are baffled by his disappearance.

Aamir ‘Eric’ Qudeer, who is from Moortown but attends Bradford University, has not been seen since 3pm on Wednesday, February 26.

The 20-year-old was last seen getting on a train at Leeds railway station to Liverpool, where he arrived at about 6pm. He has not been seen since.

Mr Qudeer’s older sister, Nailah, said he seemed to be happy at university.

She said: “He wanted to go to university to experience student life away from home. He is extremely close to his family and usually if he has gone anywhere he would notify someone in the family.

“We don’t know why he would go to Liverpool. The only link that we know of is he once had an interview at John Moores University there a couple of years ago.

“We can’t think of any reason he’d disappear. He came home the previous Friday and spent the weekend with us and he was completely normal. When he left to go back to Bradford on the Sunday, he said ‘See you on Friday.’”

West Yorkshire Police are working with Merseyside Police to find Mr Qudeer.

Anyone with information should call 101.
