Woman still missing
Meanwhile, an elderly Sri Lankan expat from Sharjah, a mother of five grown-up children, said to be mentally unstable also has been missing for over a few months.
On June 9, the woman, Rohini Perera, 58, ran away from the family’s villa near Al Kuwait Hospital in Al Qadisiya, Sharjah.
Sharjah Police confirmed to Gulf News in June that they had received the missing-person report about Perera and they have started the investigation.
The police has circulated the report to police stations across the country as well as the exit points and borders.
Her husband M.P. Madhusoothanan, 63, appealed for help to find her. Perera is said to have been wearing a maroon and purple salwar kameez and left her home barefoot.
A search is ongoing to locate the woman. Anyone with information on the woman can call Wasit Police Station on 06 507 9555, the police said.
Charitha Yattogoda, Consul General for Sri Lanka told Gulf News on Sunday that the Embassy of Sri Lanka in Abu Dhabi and the consulate general of Sri Lanka – Dubai and Northern Emirates are sparing no efforts to find the elderly woman.
"We have reached out to all relevant authorities to help us find the woman. I personally have met with the family before. I understand she suffers from depression and has been in the habit of leaving the house. Right now we don’t have any information. We are still waiting on any news about her whereabouts,” the Sri Lankan government official said.
