Missing Georgia mother was deep in debt

CARTERSVILLE, Ga., April 13 (UPI) -- Investigators were interviewing family members and going over video Wednesday for clues on a missing Georgia woman as records showed the family deep in debt.

Bartow County Sheriff Clark Millsap said so far there is no evidence indicating Wazinah Suleiman, 30, was abducted or that her husband, Abed, was involved in her disappearance, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Investigators found the sport utility vehicle she was diving in an empty parking lot near Interstate 75 Tuesday after someone reported the vehicle as abandoned.

Suleiman has been missing since Friday night, when she told her five children she was going to Walmart in Cartersville, Ga., to rent a movie.

The couple is more than half a million dollars in debt to more than 50 creditors and filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy last August, ABC News reported Wednesday, citing court records. In the filing, the couple said they earned only $29,000 that year, had assets exceeding $600,000 but owed more than $1.2 million.

Abed Suleiman Tuesday described them as "a perfect couple and a perfect family."

Millsap said investigators would examine cellphone records and try to verify through video recordings whether Wazinah Suleiman ever made it to Walmart.

Abed Suleiman returned from a hunting trip 10 minutes after his wife left the house.

Millsap said, "we're still treating it as a missing endangered persons case," but he doubted she had vanished voluntarily.
