A man of Saudi origins who was studying in Los Angeles has been missing for almost a week after selling his car on online classifieds website, an ABC-owned TV station reported Saturday.

KABC-TV said police believe the case to be suspicious and are searching for the 23-year-old who was studying electrical engineering at California State University Northridge (CSUN).

The man vanished after selling his car on Craigslist and police have found the sold car with the new owner, the station said. The new owner says he is not connected to the student’s disappearance.

"It is unknown why he left and he did not leave a note. The family is asking for anybody who has seen him or heard from him or possibly is friends with him on the social media to please get in contact with them or the detectives in the missing persons unit," the station quoted LAPD officer Nuria Vanegas as saying.

KABC-TV said the student was originally from Saudi Arabia but that he has been in the U.S. for nearly four years.
