VIDEO:The mysterious disappearance of Hussein Harmoush

Altinozu, Turkey (CNN) -- Gofran Hejazi does not know whether to refer to herself as a wife... or a widow.

She and her four children have been in limbo ever since August 29, the last day she saw her husband in the flesh.

"My eldest son sometimes opens up the computer, puts up his father's photo and starts crying," Hejazi said. "Not a day goes by without my youngest son asking me 'when is daddy coming home?'"
