THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Five Plus-one students went missing from Vallakadavu here on Monday night. They  informed their parents that they would be going to attending a wedding.

The students are Shajin, Siddique, Mohammed Bilal, Mohammed Siyad and Shunas, all aged 16, studying in St John's School and Jama Masjid School respectively in Vallakadavu.

The Valiyathura police registered a case in connection with the incident. According to police, the students were last seen in an autorickshaw as per the accounts of eye-witnesses.

The students had collected money from their parents for buying a wedding gift. One of them had taken his mother's ATM card too. Their mobile phones have been switched off and they might have gone to some remote place.

All the bus stations, railway stations and other police stations have been informed and efforts are on to trace them, the police said.

"An intense search operation has commenced and we hope to find the students at the earliest.

We have sought the assistance of the Cyber Cell to trace them as one of the mobile phones rang on Tuesday morning. Though it was found to be switched off later, we are trying to find the tower location with the help of Cyber Cell, the police said.
