Missing Sudanese Model Ataui-Deng Hopkins Found Alive In Hospital

Wednesday, August 20, 2014


A Sudanese  runway model living in New-York who was missing for nearly two weeks has been found alive.

Ataui-Deng Hopkins was found on Monday at a hospital, 12 days after she was last seen leaving the rooftop XVI Lounge on West 48th Street near Eighth Avenue on Aug. 6, according to the NYPD.

The 22-year-old models professionally under the name Ataui Deng and has walked the runways for designers like Proenza Schouler, Zac Posen, Malandrino and Lanvin, and has also appeared in Harper's Bazaar and Teen Vogue.




A spokeswoman at Ataui 's modelling agency (Trump Models), gave a press statement before she was found; she said everyone was worried about the "much loved" woman and had been making calls and trying to find her. 

Hopkins' friend, celebrity chef Roble Ali, said she had disappeared before for a day or two when she felt like she needed space. But he said he got worried about this most recent case because she'd never been gone so long.

In an Instagram post after she was found, Ali thanked police and friends for their efforts.
"She is safe and sound," he said. "I want to thank all of our friends and followers and especially the NYPD for their swift and dedicated response."
