Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Ghaemi was last seen at the American Motel in the 10100 block of west Interstate 70 Service Road north in Wheat Ridge, Colorado on September 9, 2007. She had been living at the motel with her boyfriend, Jude Peters, for about a month and a half.
She has never been heard from again. Her family reported her missing on September 11. It's uncharacteristic of Ghaemi to go longer than a few days without contacting her two children.
After Ghaemi's disappearance, drops of her blood were discovered in the motel room where she lived. The amount of blood did not indicate serious injury, however.
Foul play is possible in Ghaemi's case, and Peters is considered a person of interest. He maintains his innocence and says he doesn't know Ghaemi's whereabouts. She left her cellular phone behind. Her case remains unsolved.

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 2–5% of missing children in Europe.
By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends.
Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
