A 34-year-old wife of an engineer working in the US was reported missing along with her two children at Porur on Tuesday. Police said they have traced her to a hotel in Koyembedu and are conducting inquiry.

Police said Lakshmi Lavanya (34), wife of Ramanyya (38) of Andhra Pradesh had come to India from US along with her two children Bhumika (8) and Vinay (2) to visit her mother in Subbaiyya Nagar, Madanandapuram, Porur on October 24.

SRMC police station inspector Sheik Babu said Lakshmi Lavanya was apparently upset after she and her daughter Bhumika had developed skin allergy. On Tuesday evening, police sources said Lakshmi and her two children left for a hospital for check up at T Nagar in her brother Giridharan’s vehicle.

While on their way, Giridharan got off his car to buy pizza in a shop in the bazaar at Porur. When he returned to the car, he was shocked to find his sister and her children missing.

“She had got into an auto and had gone to Koyembedu paying the auto driver `200. We have traced her to a hotel in Koyembedu. We don’t know if she was mentally depressed. We have to inquire,” said the police inspector.

Lakshmi Lavanya’s brother, who lodged the complaint, could not be reached when Express attempted to find out about his sister’s sudden disappearance.
