Police are searching for a 38-year-old woman, who went missing in West Hartford last week.

Mame Alemu Zegeye, who was born in Ethiopia, was last seen on Aug. 8. Police said she left to do some shopping at Kane Street Plaza around 10 a.m. that day. 

The homeowner reported her missing around 2 p.m. last Monday. 

Police said Alemu Zegeye, who lived Qatar, had no serious health concerns. However, police said their concern for her safety was because she's a foreign national temporarily visiting the country.

Anyone with any information about the whereabouts of Alemu Zegeye is asked to call the West Hartford Police Department at 860-523-5203.
