Hawthorn Indian boy missing: Police search in progress

Melbourne, Fri. 8 August 2008

Police have today resumed their search for nine-year-old Yadav Munohur, who
has been missing since 5:30 pm yesterday.Yadav had asked to go to the local park to play after dinner but became impatient and left his Glenferrie Road home.

His mother went after him and was informed by some local students that they
had seen a young boy heading towards the Gardiner’s Creek parkland.

His family searched the immediate area for approximately two hours before
contacting local police.

Local police, Airwing and Water Police members last night searched Gardiner’
s Creek and surrounding parkland for Yadav and have resumed their search of
the local area this morning.

Police are concerned for Yadav because he has not been in Australia long and
has limited English skills.

He has a tram pass and does enjoy riding on trams and trains but does not
know the local area.

Yadav was last seen wearing a dark blue jacket with green stripes, blue
tracksuit pants, a blue and white check shirt and blue slippers.

Police are very concerned for Yadav’s welfare and urge anyone who has
sighted him or have any information to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333
000 or visit www.crimestoppers.com.au.
