Deputies: Despite finding vehicle, nothing new in disappearance case
BATON ROUGE - East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's deputies are still mulling over details of a missing persons case, and said Friday there were no significant developments in the case involving Tahereh Ghassemi.
Ghassemi, 54, vanished Saturday, April 11. Her Jaguar was found burned on Chalma Avenue.
Deputies said a vehicle they had been searching for in relation to the case had been found, but still have no new leads. The SUV was seen near Ghassemi's home in the area of Coursey Boulevard and Millwood Drive around the time she disappeared. A spokesperson said the vehicle was found last week.
"I'm extremely heartbroken," son Hamid Ghassemi said in an emotional interview with WBRZ recently. "Anyone that has information, I beg of you...beg of you to please come forward, help me find my mother safe."
Deputies ask for people with possible information about Ghassemi's disappearance to contact them.
