Dubai, Aug.9 (ANI): Two years ago, 56-year-old Majid Abdul Majid had dinner with his son Nishad, who was 21 at the time.
The next morning, Nishad left for work as usual, but never returned home.
Majid, an Indian who hails from Kannur in Kerala, works as a driver with an Arab household in Umm Al Quwain. His son was employed as an accountant with a real estate company run by a close relative.
According to the Gulf News, Majid found that Nishad had reached Mangalore, and is now hoping that a fresh appeal through the media will urge people to come forward with any information they may have.
"Initially, we only realized something was wrong when he didn't return home and his mobile appeared switched off continuously," says Majid.
When he went to report his son missing, it was Umm Al Quwain police who looked up Nishad's details and informed him that his son had left the country.
Assad Abu Bakr, who runs the company Nishad worked for a year with, said that nothing peculiar had happened on the day, according to colleagues.
Nishad's mother and his younger brother live in India.
"We are all hopeful that he is still alive somewhere," Majid said. (ANI)
