40 Cal’s daughter, Saniyya Dennis, has been missing for almost a week, and now the Harlem rapper is asking for help in finding her.

“My daughter Saniyya is missing out of Buffalo State College,” the rapper wrote on his Instagram profile. “Anyone with any helpful info hit my dm, any other matters respectfully don’t contact me!, $10,000 for any info that connect.”

Dennis went missing from SUNY Buffalo State College on April 24, 2021, at around 10:30 p.m. and was last seen leaving her campus dorm. “I am very concerned about Saniyya,” her mother, Latisha Dennis, told WGRZ-TV. “We just want our daughter back. We love her and miss her very much, and this is really hard.”

“I am offering a reward out of my own money, $10,000, $20,000, whatever. I swear I will pay, just give details. You do not even have to tell your name, just details that connect. I swear I will pay you, I just want to get my daughter back, that’s it.” he said.

A native of the Bronx, Saniyya is in her sophomore year, where she is pursuing engineering and is an honor student. Surveillance footage from an elevator in her residence hall shows that she was last seen on Saturday, and police say they have information about which way she left campus, but that has not led to any substantive leads.

Because of CoViD-19 guidelines, students live alone, without roommates, so her friends did not know where Saniyya was headed. According to police, the way she left her dorm was in no way suspicious, and there is nothing to suggest that the investigation is criminal in nature.

UPD and campus officials are in close consultation with Saniyya’s family and are providing support during this difficult time.

Saniyya is a Black female, who is 5’03” tall, weighing approximately 125 lbs., with black hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information about Saniyya’s whereabouts is asked to contact Buffalo State’s University Police Department at 716-878-6333 or Information can also be shared through the University Police anonymous tip line at 716-878-3166. Please continue to keep Saniyya and her family and friends in your thoughts while we hope for her safe return.
