An Indian-origin teenage girl in Wales, missing since December, is dead, the police confirmed. Nida Naseer, 19, was last seen at her home in Linton Street in Newport, at 8pm on December 28. Since then her mobile phone had also not been used.
Her body was recovered from an estuary. Gwent Police said formal identification of the body found in Newport on Thursday has been carried out and it’s Naseer’s body, who disappeared nearly three months ago after going to put the bins outside her home. Inspector Christ Haire said, “We can confirm that the body is sadly that of Nida Naseer. A post-mortem examination will be carried out – the death remains unexplained”.
Members of Naseer’s family have been notified, he said. The teenager’s older sister, Shamyla, 23, told a press conference earlier this year that she believed Nida’s disappearance was due to her being upset about being unable to attend university.
Despite getting good grades, Naseer’s status as a failed asylum seeker meant she would not receive any funding to study for a degree. Her family could not afford to pay for her studies. Relatives and police described her vanishing as “totally out of character” – especially as she needs medication which stops her from becoming anaemic.
Earlier this month, police said they had decided to stop ground searches for the teenager. Superintendent Mark Warrender, local policing commander for Newport said, “This is an extremely tragic case and our sincere condolences remain with the family. Since Nida went missing we have remained hopeful that she would be found safe and well and reunited with her family”.
