A man from Andhra Pradesh went missing, and was later found, in Delaware in the United States, after his parents suspected that he could have attempted suicide.

The 25-year-old man Prudhvinath Kanduri from Kurnool, was working in Delaware.

Writing for the Times of India, Sushil Rao reported that empty vials of Diphenhydramine and knives, along with a napkin with blood stains were found near his house in Delaware on August 21, following which Prudhvi's friends informed his parents.

According to reports, Prudhvinath had not gone to work on Monday and stopped answering his phone. When he did not return home either, his friends and family began worrying about him.             

On Tuesday, Gopalkrishna Kanduri, Prudhvi’s father wrote a letter to the Governor of Delaware, John Carney, the Indian Embassy in Washington and to the Delaware Police.

The ToI report quotes a letter from the parents to the local authorities as saying, "We are writing to you from a small town called Kurnool in India. Our son resides at 21 Bridal Path, Wilmington DE 19808. Our son has been missing since about a day now and when his worried friends found that he has been searching for ways to commit suicide on his tablet PC, they complained to the local police yesterday afternoon around 4pm...We are extremely worried for his life. If he is not located immediately and taken to a hospital, he may not survive. Please ensure our dear son's right to life is protected."

Following this, the New Castle County police department put out a notice that read, "Police learned that Prudhvinath Kanduri left his residence in a vehicle and made statements that cause a concern for his welfare. Prudhvinath Kanduri is described as a white male, 5’8” tall, 165 pounds, black hair and brown eyes. It is unknown at this time what type of vehicle he left in."

Police later put out a message saying, "Prudhvinath Kanduri has been located, Gold Alert cancelled." However, no further details were provided by them.
