A software professional hailing from Guntur has been reportedly missing from Washington D.C in USA since Sunday afternoon.

According to Potharaju Krishnamurthy, retired assistant commercial tax officer, his son P. Venkata Sarath Kumar (35) has been missing from Washington since 4.45 p.m. on Sunday (USA local time) after he mysteriously missed a tourist cab, while on a holiday jaunt with his cousin, P. Srinivasu.

Mr. Kumar, who is working with TCS, has been living in USA for the last seven years. He is a resident of Chicago.

Mr. Krishnamurthy said that his son reached Washington D.C on Friday. Accompanied by Mr. Vasu and his family, they set out for a weekend trip and visited Niagara Falls on Saturday.

On Sunday, they booked a tourist cab for seeing places around Washington. They stopped at a park to have snacks. Mr. Srinivasu along with his family boarded the cab presuming that Mr. Sarath Kumar had already boarded the cab. After travelling for a while, they noticed that Mr. Kumar was not in the bus and alighted from the bus.

They reached the park where they had last seen Mr. Kumar, but the latter was not to be seen. A complaint has been lodged with the police and no clues were available till now. “My son was in touch with me till 1.48 p.m. on Sunday and then we lost the connection. His phones were switched off,” says Mr. Krishnamurthy.
