Mangaluru, July 21, 2015: A 13 year old girl from Nagori, a Class VIII student of Capitanio High School in Mangaluru has been reported missing since the evening of July 20, Monday.
The missing girl is Chaitra, daughter of Mallavva and Rangappa Kambar couple. Chaitra who had returned from school as usual, had later left for tuitions, only to go missing.
A uniform and a school bag inside a plastic cover which was later spotted in a narrow lane in the area was handed over to Garodi Temple authorities. Soon locals rushed to the spot and upon checking the bag found the girl’s ID card and also the contact number of the parents.
Chaitra’s father Rangappa was immediately informed and he identified the uniform and school bag as that of Chaitra. But a search for Chaitra proved to be a futile exercise.
Meanwhile, the CCTV footage of the temple showed Chaitra entering the temple in her school uniform and leaving in casual clothes. She had then boarded a Route Number 9 bus from there. There is no information as to yet as to what was her intention.
Kankanady police are investigating.
