Finding woman missing in India top priority for Foreign Ministry

Take note – story published 6 years ago

The search of Latvian citizen Liga Skromane, who went missing in India in early March, is a top priority of the Foreign Ministry, the ministry told LETA March 29.

The ministry explains that the Latvian Embassy in India is in close contact with the woman's family, as well as several Indian police departments.

At the same time, the Latvian Foreign Ministry has also turned to the Indian Foreign Ministry for additional assistance.

''There are no updates in her search at the moment. The reason for her disappearance is also not known yet. Indian police are currently investigating the incident,'' the ministry said.

Liga Skromane, who had arrived in India together with her sister Ilze Skromane, disappeared in Kerala, southern Inida, on March 14. Liga, who suffers from severe depression, had left the Ayurveda treatment center at Pothencode without taking any travel documents or money. An auto driver had told cops that he took her to Kovalam, but the police couldn’t find her there.

The missing Latvian’s sister Ilze Skromane has announced a reward of around EUR 1,250 to anyone who helps trace her sister and posted missing-person flyers, but her attempts to find Liga have so far been unsuccessful.

Liga and Ilze Skromane are Latvian citizens that had been living in Ireland for some time already.
