Missing kid finds his family, finally

Two-year-long search

A 12-year-old boy who went missing from his residence at Malviya Nagar in south Delhi two years ago was reunited with his family on Monday.

According to police, Aamir Hussain had gone out of his house in May 2010, but could not find his way back home.

A missing person complaint was later lodged at Malviya Nagar police station over a statement by his father.

Now, it has come to light that the kid had been living with a 27-year-old scrap dealer Azad Hussain in Gurgaon during the time span.

“Since he had less knowledge about the area around his home, he could not come back,” a police official said, adding Azad, however, did keep trying to search for Aamir’s family members.

On Monday, Azad approached Delhi Police saying Aamir told him that he used to stay near Chirag Dilli and was eager to find his family.

“We immediately swung into action and verified the credentials of Aamir with the child who went missing in 2010. “His parents were called and the child was reunited with his family,” the official added.

Didn’t know where to go

Aamir says on the day when he went missing, he randomly sat in a bus without knowing where to go.

The bus stopped at Gurgaon where he met Azad, who helped him and took him to his house.

When Hussain asked Aamir about his home, all he could recall was that he lived near a drain.

“Azad kept on searching for homes near drains in Gurgaon, but could not find it. “On Monday, Aamir heard about Chirag Dilli from someone and told Azad that he lived near Chirag Dilli,” the official said. On hearing this, Azad appraoched Malviya Nagar police station. The family members shed tears of happiness upon learning from police that their child has been found.
