A 26-year-old engineer from Chennai has been missing in Helsinki in Finland for the last one week. Hari Sudhan, who hails from George Town in Chennai, has been in Finland since February 2016, and suddenly went missing last week.

The TCS engineer last visited Chennai around two months ago.

Hari’s younger brother Tej told Deccan Chronicle that the family has not received any updates about him and that they have no option but to wait. He added that both TCS and the embassy officials have been very helpful and have been informing them about whatever is happening.

The family had tweeted to external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj and the Indian embassy in Finland. They had received acknowledgments from the Minister as well as the embassy.

The Indian embassy office in Finland has offered to help the family. “We are in contact with police and TCS regarding the whereabouts of Hari Sudhan. Please contact us at hoc.Helsinki@mea.gov.in or +358443414350,” Embassy of India Finland tweeted.

A family friend told The Times of India that officials in Finland have not been able to find him till now despite police searching for him in various jurisdictions and hospitals. The investigators have also asked the Finland government to track his phone.

However, TCS will be sending two of Hari’s relatives to Finland as the Finnish police said that they would only provide further details to the family.

The last time he spoke to his mother in Chennai was on September 8 around 7pm, which is 4.30 pm in Helsinki, according to Balakanna, Hari Sudhan’s father. He further told ToI that Hari had the habit of going for outings with friends on weekends but he did not return on Monday morning.
