With the glow of small flames illuminating from Miracle League Baseball Stadium, more than 100 friends and family members of Najib “Jubi” Monsif gathered in solidarity to pray for the missing Scottsdale man’s safe return.
Monsif, a 20-year-old man with autism, was last seen at his home in Scottsdale on Sept. 23; family members believe he was kidnapped.
Police officials and volunteers have searched around Scottsdale for Monsif. He was last seen at his home near Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard and Via Linda.
On Oct. 2, more than 100 friends and family members of Monsif were present at Miracle League Baseball Stadium, 11130 E. Cholla St., Scottsdale.
Police officials say, during the initial investigation, searches included the neighborhood and surrounding areas including parks, shopping centers, the McDowell Mountain Preserve, canals and the places Monsif is known to frequent.
The family has launched a social media campaign to encourage local residents to keep an eye out for Monsif, and started a GoFundMe page.
Monsif is described as a middle eastern male, about 5-foot, 10-inches with a thin build and possibly wearing all black clothing. He can speak and is reported to have the mental capacity of an 8-year-old child.
