Police made an appeal to the public on Wednesday for information on 17-year-old Gurung Chitra who went missing after arriving in Hong Kong.
Chitra, who holds a Hong Kong permanent identity card but resides in London with her mother, landed at Hong Kong International Airport on the night of November 10, the South China Morning Post reported.
Chitra’s mother filed a report with the British police and on November 14 called for police in Hong Kong to help track down her daughter.
“The mother reportedly told police that she has a good relationship with her daughter, and she did not know why her daughter came to Hong Kong,” a police source told SCMP, adding that immigration records revealed Chitra did not leave the city when she arrived.
The 17-year-old is described as being 1.57 meters tall (5.15 feet), weighing in at around 53 kilograms (116 pounds) and of normal build, according to police. She has a long face with warm complexion and short, straight black and brown hair.
No further information about Chitra or the reason for her visit to Hong Kong has been released by the police at this time.
However, officers are reportedly going through the airport and MTR stations’ surveillance footage to try and track down the teenage girl.
Anyone with any information on Chitra’s whereabouts or who may have spotted her is asked to contact the Regional Missing Person Unit of New Territories North by calling 3661 3085 or 6273 5787 or notify any police station.
The New Territories regional missing persons unit is also investigating the case.
