Puttur: Bharatesh Bhat (22), son of Shankar Bhat of Nisarga house in Alankaru village in the taluk, has been reportedly gone missing since May 31.
A software engineer by profession, he had recently got married. He was working online from home. Around the end of May, heavy rains and lightning had affected telephone lines and Internet connectivity.
On this pretext, he had told at home that he would go to Mangaluru, take up a room on rent and work from there. He had asked his family members not to phone him, while on the other hand he would call them himself.
Ever since, Bharatesh has neither returned home nor contacted home. His father has filed a complaint in the Kadaba police station in this regard. Anyone knowing his whereabouts may contact the police.
