Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Dawud was last seen in the 1100 block of Elizabeth Street in Pasadena, California on February 7, 2017. He has never been heard from again. He was in good health at the time of his disappearance and, although he did not own a car, he frequently took walks in the Pasadena area. It's uncharacteristic of him to leave without warning.
Three weeks after Dawud's disappearance, his grandson, 38-year-old Raheem Karriem, was charged with murder in connection with the shooting death of a Los Angeles, California man. Raheem was the last person known to have seen his grandfather, and after his murder arrest he was named as a person of interest in Dawud's disappearance. He has a criminal record, mainly for financial crimes, and was on parole when Dawud disappeared.
Dawud's case remains unsolved and no one has been charged in connection with his disappearance.
