Family searches for man missing since Grenfell tower fire

One missing man’s family has been searching for him since he disappeared in the Grenfell tower fire three days ago.

Hesham Rahman lived on the 20th floor of the Grenfell towers. The 24-story building was engulfed in flames on June 14, killing at least 30 people.

Rahman’s sister Noha Baghdad and nephew Karim Mussilhy are handing out posters to people in the hope that someone can provide them with more information.

The waiting and not knowing is what is hurting the most, they said.

“I don’t want to listen to anymore rumors ’cause it’s killing me. I want the authorities to confirm if he is passed away, we need to identify him and we need to see what we’re going do and how we are going to move forward,” said Baghdad.

Dozens are missing after the fire and hundreds are now homeless.

“Those people (who lost somebody in the fire) deserve … not just us but everybody else … deserves to know, you know, what’s … what’s happened to their family members,” said Mussilhy.

Police have launched an investigation to determine whether any crimes contributed to the blaze.

British Prime Minister Theresa May announced a public inquiry while London Mayor Sadiq Khan called for an interim report on the fire to be published this summer.
