A cousin of Suleiman told The Daily Tribune News that his family learned of her disappearance from her husband on Sunday. Ramzi Jaber, who lives in New York, said Suleiman's parents are expected to arrive from Palestine tonight.

Abed Suleiman told the deputy that his wife had gone to return a video and had not returned. Mr. Suleiman said he had gone hunting but returned around 8:50 p.m. due to scheduling problems. His children informed him Wazina Suleiman left about 10 minutes before he returned.
