Two weeks after Poornima Sai, a 15-year-old student from Hyderabad, went missing, police are still unable to trace her.
The Class 10 student had left home on June 7 and told her parents that she was going to school in Nizampet, but did not return. Her parents later filed a missing complaint at the Bachupally police station.
"We are still looking for clues, and we have spread the word. However, we do not have any solid leads yet," Inspector K Balakrishna Reddy from the Bachupally police station told TNM.
Last week, the police received a call from Chennai that he may have spotted Poornima along with a boy, on the highway leading to Bengaluru.
"We immediately dispatched a team to Chennai, and they checked several places, and also obtained CCTV footage from the local police. However, nothing concrete was found," the Inspector said.
The police still have 14 teams on standby, ready to leave for any city where Poornima may be found.
The police said that Poornima mainly used WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram.
Before she left, she deactivated all her social media accounts and deleted WhatsApp history, along with call logs on her phone.
The police had managed to recover some of the deleted data, but there was 'nothing useful' in it.
"Dressed in black colour leggings and an ash colour T shirt, she is around 5 feet tall, and wears glasses. She can speak Telugu and English fluently. The missing girl's parents are deeply depressed," the Cyberabad had earlier said, in a missing notice.
Meanwhile, parents of the girl continue to be worried about their child, and said they have been spending sleepless nights.
"We just want her to come back. I'm scared to even go into her room. I've been lying in the hall, hoping that someone will knock on the door and get her back," her mother told TV9.
Any information on the missing girl can be passed on to the police at +919491060942 and +919490617126.
