Ethiopian man, father of four reportedly missing in Atlanta

December 16, 2019

Tesfu Gebru, Ethiopian man and a father of four, is reportedly missing in Atlanta. According to Mereja, Ethiopian News, which in turn cited another Ethiopian news source- Admas Radio, Tesfu, did not return home since Sunday, December 9.

His spouse, Mekdes, told Admas radio that she has reported the matter to the police. However, Mekdes, said that she was told that her husband could return and to wait.  She first called her husband when did not return from work at the time he normally does. She continued to call him until Monday morning (December 10) and she reported to the police.

Police declined to register her husbands’ name as a missing person since it had not been 24 hours by that time since he was missing, said Mekdes.

“…he is my husband, my brother, and my father, and we have four children,” she said as cited by Mereja. She needs the support of Ethiopians in finding her husband.

Police have established that his credit card was used at a gas station on Monday but there was no video footage in the gas station, and hence unclear to tell if it was him or not.

Tesfu Gebru lived in Atlanta for about twenty years.

    May you find him in good shape. As a person that was reported as a missing person multiple times in the past, I urge his family members not to despair .

    A man gotta do what a man gotta do.

    Maybe he has had it. He can’t take it anymore with some of our women nagging always needing more and never enough, then he fled the scene.

    Melaku you sound like a weak man. Real man doesn’t abandon his wife and kids because “he has had it”. You man up and take care of your kids at the very least. Not preaching just a thought!

      Dan, No I’m not a weak man. I believe a man under no circumstances will walk away from his kids…And I’ll never do. But, the spouse maybe the issue, some of them with a non-stop demand of the material things that made him resort to walk away.

    Confused about the 2 comments is there something we don’t understand about men here?

        I second Melaku , the wife stayed at home and made 4 kids in America .she had him work two jobs and had this poor man her servant .
        I think they had disagreement about the house getting foreclosed on them and he fled the scene !
