Missing children located

A nine-year-old girl and an eleven-year-boy who had been reported missing in Uppuweli since Monday evening were found in Valachchenai last noon.

The children had travelled all night from Trincomalee to Valachchenai in the Baticaloa bound train and got off the next morning at Valachchenai station.

A woman in the train had noticed the two children and alerted a child probation officer in Valachchenai who traced them at the station.

He then handed the children to theValachchenai OIC.

Uppuweli Police also commenced investigations after the children’s parents lodged complaints on Monday evening regarding the boy and the girl who did not return home after attending a tuition class in the area.

Several teams from the Uppuweli Police were deployed to search for the two children. Investigations so far have revealed that they themselves left Uppuweli and travelled in the train to Valachchenai.
