(Reuters) – The FBI has joined the search for a college student from Saudi Arabia who went missing from his Southern California home last month and has not been seen since, a spokeswoman for the agency said on Friday.

Abdullah Abdullatif Alkadi, 23, was last seen at his home in the Los Angeles suburb of Reseda at around noon on Sept. 17, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Laura Eimiller, a spokeswoman for the FBI, said the agency had begun assisting in the probe at the request of the LAPD…

The LAPD declined to say where they believe Alkadi, an international student at California State University, Northridge, may have gone or if they suspect he had been the victim of foul play…

Alkadi’s Twitter feed has not been updated since Sept. 14, when he posted a message in Arabic.

Local KCBS-TV reported that Alkadi sold one of his cars, an Audi worth approximately $52,000, on Craigslist around the time of his disappearance.

The Los Angeles Times reported that his cell phone had been traced to the city of Beaumont, some 80 miles east of Los Angeles, but that it had been deactivated…

One of his Audis? Worth $52,000? Kid clearly came from a rich Saudi family. It sounds like Jihad Syndrome to me.
