Missing Indian boy in Sharjah: Search continues as mother pleads for his return
Parents refute social media reports that Ameya Santosh has been found.
Parents of the missing Indian boy in Sharjah have widened the search for their son, by forwarding Whatsapp voice note recordings begging him to return home.
Since Sunday morning (November 24), the 15-year-old Ameya Santosh has been officially missing for over 48 hours, and parents have launched a relentless WhatsApp campaign in a bid to find their son.
Since Saturday evening, the WhatsApp posts have gone viral, and there have also been unverified reports of finding him near Sharjah City Centre. There have been several rumours on community WhatsApp groups on Sunday morning suggesting he has been found, Ameya's mother Bindu Santosh told Khaleej Times, "It's not true. My son is still missing," she said.
The teenager was last seen after his father dropped him for Science coaching lessons to a private tutor on Friday. Ameya never made it to the class. "I've sent out recorded messages on WhatsApp in the hope that he will hear it and come back home. I don't want anything else, I only want everyone's coordination in finding him," said a distressed Bindu.
The parents Bindu and Santosh Rajan are originally Keralites, however, the family is settled in Pune, Maharashtra. On Sunday, the parents sent out messages in Malayalam and a fresh wave of English texts requesting the community's help in finding Ameya.
The family is also working with Sharjah Police to find their son.
Ameya was last seen in a parrot green t-shirt, navy blue three-fourth pants, and a black backpack. "He has a black thread around his wrist. I doubt he has anything more than Dh 10 with him," said his mother Bindu. Ameya was carrying a mobile phone, but it has been switched off since his disappearance.
