Police are yet to trace Srikanth Rayadurgam, an Indian youngster who has been missing since October 1st, leading them to conclude that he is probably dead.
Much to the chagrin of his brother-in-law, Nagesh Kakanoor, who says that it took the police nearly a week to send divers to search the area, a delay that, Kakanoor believes might have cost Srikanth his life.
Rayadurgam walked out of the Mt Albert home of his sister Padam and Kakanoor and out of their lives on Thursday, October 1.
Later that day he took $250 out of a Queen St money machine and that night tried to call his uncle in India on his cellphone.
The following day his wallet and some personal items were found at the Westhaven Marina, stuff.co.nz reports.
Kakanoor says the family is still hoping Srikanth would resurface. Speaking about the family's predicament, Kakanoor said, "There is no closure, it is the biggest thing which is happening in our life."
