Details: On September 10, 2001, 31-year old female physician Dr. Sneha Ann Philip had the day off and went out to breakfast at 10AM with her husband Ron Lieberman, also a doctor. The two lived in Battery Park City, just blocks from the World Trade Center. Sneha told Ron that she was going back to their apartment to do housework and they said goodbye at 11:30am. Afterwards, Sneha did some shopping across the street from the World Trade Center but she never returned home. At 11:15pm when Ron came home from work, Sneha wasn't there but he assumed she was out with friends or family, and when he woke up at around 6am the next morning, September 11, he was not worried because he assumed that she had stayed at either her cousin or brother's house. Ron left and went on the 6:45 subway to work, and then came 8:45am. A plane had flown into the North Tower of the World Trade Center, and Ron heard the news and it was assumed an accident until fifteen minutes later when the second plane flew into the South Tower, just minutes away from their apartment. In a sad and strange coincidence, Sneha vanished in lower Manhattan the night before one of the most tragic events in American history, in which thousands were suddenly gone-many of whom were never found. As Ron would later learn, Sneha did not spend the night at her brother's house, nor her cousin's, nor any of her friends. Sneha did communicate with her mother via instant messaging at 2:30pm on September 10 and security camera video shows her leaving the apartment a few hours later at 5:15pm. There were credit card purchases for $500 at around 7:15pm at a designer discount department store across from WTC, where she bought bed linen, lingere, and three pairs of shoes. A shoe clerk reported that she Sneha with another woman and Sneha said that she was a friend of hers, but the woman never came forward. Since the NYPD were too busy with the 9/11 attacks, Ron hired a private investigator to help track down anyone who may have seen Sneha after she left the store. Family and friends of Sneha placed several missing person posters throughout New York City around Ground Zero. Several questions remain in this case including where Sneha stayed the night of September 10 if she wasn't with her brother or cousin, did she leave the apartment store with this mysterious friend and did she stay with this woman, and if this is true, why has the woman never came forward? Another theory is that Sneha met with foul play after she left the store. Another is that she went across the street and stopped at the Millenium Hotel Bar, and may have stayed there and died during the attacks. Friends and family believe that finding the mystery woman who was last seen with Sneha is the key to solving the mystery of her disappearance.
Suspects: On the night that she vanished, Sneha was seen with two unidentified woman at a department store. Police do not believe that they are suspects in the case, but may have information about her disappearance.
Extra Notes: This case originally ran on the June 11, 2002 episode.
Results: Unresolved. In 2008, Sneha was declared dead and is believed to have died during the collapse of the twin towers. She is now listed as a victim of 9/11. However, her body has never been found.
