The Fiji Police Force has started a search and are on the look- out for a miss­ing mother and her two-year- old daugh­ter, both of Qeleloa, Nadi. Mother of three Bharti Naidu, 25, and her daugh­ter Ishita Mu­daliar, were re­ported miss­ing last Thurs­day. Police In­spec­tor Jo­saia We­icavu con­firmed that they had re­ceived a re­port of Ms Naidu and her daugh­ter miss­ing, and were do­ing all they can to sought in­for­ma­tion on their where­abouts.

Ac­cord­ing to Police pro­to­col, once

a miss­ing per­sons re­port is lodged an in­ves­ti­ga­tion file is opened and the per­son or peo­ple who file the re­port are in­ter­viewed first. From then on the phys­i­cal search be­gins. Chan­dra Naidu, Ms Naidu’s mother, said her daugh­ter was wear­ing a black top with black and white pants on Thurs­day. Ms Naidu’s hus­band Muni Kailash Mu­daliar, 28, said he last saw his wife that Thurs­day morn­ing af­ter he gave her some money.

“She said that she wanted to visit fam­i­lies in Nadrala in Si­ga­toka and that was the last I heard from them that day,” he said. “We use to have ups and downs but then ev­ery­thing was okay.”

Ms Bharti’s fa­ther, Bowin­dra Naidu, 53, is in shock to learn of his only daugh­ter miss­ing. “Her mum last spoke to her at around 2.30pm on that day but she did say she was in town, but did not men­tion where she was go­ing, if she had said any­thing that would lead to a clue,” Mr Naidu said. He said they lodged the re­port at the Nadi Police Sta­tion on the same day. “Her fam­ily mem­bers and her other two lit­tle daugh­ters are cry­ing and ask­ing for their mother and sis­ter to re­turn home,” he said. Mr Naidu is call­ing on the pub­lic to con­tact them on 971-8683 or 875-9903, or con­tact the near­est Police sta­tion if they have in­for­ma­tion on their two fam­ily mem­bers miss­ing. As of March 23 Crime Stop­pers had re­ported that three peo­ple were miss­ing so far. They are Neeraj Nilesh Prasad, 23, of Lot 17 Vaele Rd, Caubati. He was last seen on March 7; Shazmin Shyna Bi, 18, of Vu­ni­vau, Labasa. She’s been miss­ing since Jan­uary 2 this year; and Jen­nifer Lave­nia of Waik­erekere, Lami. She was last seen on March 18 go­ing to classes at the Fiji Na­tional univer­sity (FNU).
