Web Desk‌Updated: Thursday Feb 27, 2020

KOLLAM : Police in Kollam have intensified their search for a missing 6-year-old who disappeared  from her home in Kollam this morning. Lookout notices have been issued and checking at district borders have been stepped up. A 50-member special  team has been formed headed by Chathanoor S. I and assisted by cyber personnel.


The child Devananda, daughter of Pradeep and Dhanya couple, went missing between 9.30 – 10.30 am Thursday. Dhanya left for outdoors to wash clothes and the girl tried to follow. Dhanya then asked the child to get back and remain at home. Seeing the child enter the house back, she left to do the laundry,  but could not find Devananda when she returned. A temple in the neighbourhood has festivals on and the child took a holiday for being there.

Neighbours and people from the temple made extensive searches in the area and adjoining places but there was no trace of Devananda.
