The Amsterdam police have released information in Opsporing Verzocht about the investigation into the missing Rachid Zaoudi, who disappeared almost seven years ago. It is suspected that his disappearance has to do with money problems.
The then 36-year-old Rachid Zaoudi has not been seen since December 5, 2013. Zaoudi grew up in Zwolle and moved to Amsterdam as a young adult. He lived at the Olof Palmeplein in Amsterdam North and rented part of his house to an acquaintance. According to police, in the months before his disappearance, the family received indications that he was in financial difficulties. Those problems may have been the reason for his disappearance.
Zaoudi ran a tapas restaurant on the Bilderdijkstraat in Amsterdam-West from 2008 to 2010. After that went bankrupt, he tried to earn money by preparing rooms for cannabis plantations together with a handyman. The police also have evidence that he was involved in the transport of hashish from Morocco to the Netherlands.
On the day of his disappearance, Rachid Zaoudi was in contact with his seriously ill mother to congratulate her on her birthday. He also indicated that he would visit her in the hospital two days later. However, he never showed up. His mother passed away in 2014.
A reward of 15,000 euros has been awarded for the tip that leads to a solution of the case.
