Missing local youth from Hulhumale', Mohamed Azhan, was last seen near the Redbull sporting pitch at Hulhumale' Phase I, reports Maldives Police Service.
A statement released by local law enforcement on Sunday evening, September 25, claims Azhan's family filed a missing person's complaint last Monday, September 19, after he had not been responded to his family since 06:00 am Sunday morning, September 18.
Details of the missing youth were shared with various units of the law enforcement authority. However, any attempts at tracing the whereabouts of Azhan have met with failure so far.
Authorities inspected CCTV footage from the area where he was reported to have been last spotted. Local law enforcement reports the footage showed the now missing youth, had hailed a cab from a Hulhumale' guesthouse and reached Tower 13 of Hiyaa flat in Phase II. He was seen coming from the tower around 04:53 am, and traveled back to the guesthouse in Phase I in a white color taxi cab.
Police confirms identifying the taxi drivers, who provided transport for Azhan. Authorities further highlighted they were able to shrink the search area into an exact location where the missing youth was last spotted. Authorities remain certain Azhan had not traveled out of Male' by air, or out of country.
The authority is currently inspecting footage from the Redbull sporting pitch.
Locals are encouraged to contact Maldives Police Service on either 9393351 or 3322111, if they were privy to the whereabouts of the missing youth.
