Kundapur: Malathi B Shetty, a resident of Charukottige of Korgi village near Tekkatte in Kundapur taluk of Udupi district, had left her house around 1-30 pm on June 24. She has not returned home since and no clues are available about her whereabouts.
A complaint was filed at the police station here. The family members and well-wishers have made enquiries all around but there has been no success. Her son Satish, who is the CEO of Codeproof Technologies Inc in Redmond, WA in the USA, made an airdash here on July 4.
Five year old Picture
Shetty met district superintendent of police Annamalai requesting him to fast-track the search and inquiry process. Until date, even after almost a month, nothing is known about her.
At the time of leaving the house, she wore a simple sari, a pair of old shoes and did not even take an umbrella and her mobile phone. It was obvious that she intended to visit a neighbour and not to travel very far. However, as usual, she wore jewellery worth about Rs 3-75 lakh. This has created fears that she might have been kidnapped.
Satish Shetty has appealed to the media and the public to spread the word around so that she can be traced.
