Cape Town – The family of a 69-year-old man who went missing from Mumbai International Airport in India is offering a reward for his safe return.
Dhramalingum Pillay of Tongaat was returning from a holiday in the country when he allegedly went missing on January 29.
Pillay was travelling with his daughter when he wandered out of the airport after their flight was delayed.
Family spokesperson Mandy Govender said they were worried because Pillay recently suffered a stroke and had dementia, reported IOL.
According to Govender, there was a long flight delay and Pillay’s daughter dozed off for a few minutes due to exhaustion. When she woke up, her father was gone, the report said.
“He has no phone or any documentation on him,” the report quoted Govender as saying.
A reward of 50 000 rupees (R10 700) has been offered for his safe return.
The case was being investigated by the Sahar police in Mumbai.
