The missing woman Liga Skromane’s husband and sister had been frantically searching for her ever since she went missing.

It is said that she had arrived in Thiruvananthapuram on February 21 for Ayurvedic treatment of post-traumatic depression.

As part of search operations, the woman’s husband Andrew Jordan and sister went about appealing Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan as well as Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj for helping trace her.

They had announced a reward of Rs. one lakh for anyone who gave information on Liga.

According to the sister, police told her that Liga was last seen on March 19 by locals near Kovalam. But there was no trace of Liga since then.
