DC News Break: Model Ataui Deng Reported Missing

Evening Divas!

I recently read an upsetting article about budding model Ataui Deng. The niece of supermodel Alek Wek has been reported missing. She was last seen on the Lower East Side of New York City.  She has not been seen for ten days. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

If you have any information that can possibly lead to Ataui's safe return, please email your tips to FindAtaui@gmail.com. She is Sudanese and stands 5 feet 11 inches tall.

Prayers for Ataui.

Ataui was found alive in a New York hospital not long after reports started surfacing about her disappearance.  A hospital worker actually called it in. No word on how she got there or why. Great to know she was found safe.
