Hunt for dad with posters, hope

MUMBAI: A telecom engineer, along with her two sisters, are going from station to station in Mumbai suburbs with a picture of their cancer-survivor father who had gone missing from Goa three months ago.

During inquiry, the sisters learnt that their father was seen in the city so they decided to take the help of good samaritans to trace him. The women said their father, Joseph Lopes (65), can't speak after the cancer operation. He stepped out of the vicinity alone after 10 years and the sisters suspect that he may be finding it difficult remembering his address.

When the family approached the Mumbai police for help, they were told that the police cannot help as Joseph went missing from Goa. "We don't know what to do and are trying everything. We know he cannot reach us, so we are trying hard to reach him with the help of people," said one of the sisters, Cinthiya.

Joseph was staying with his wife, a retired teacher, in Vasai. The couple have three daughters, all of whom are married. Joseph had been operated on for throat cancer. He went to Goa along with a group in December and went missing from a market.

The sisters started the search for him in Goa, where a bus driver told them he had seen their father boarding a Mumbai-bound bus. The driver told them it was difficult to understand Joseph but he understood from his distorted voice he wanted to go 'Vasai'.

The sisters started to inquire about Joseph in the city and Navi Mumbai. They also visited old-age homes.

After inquiring with people between Borivli and Virar, the family learnt that he had been spotted in the extended western suburbs. Since last month, they have been standing outside railway stations with a poster of Joseph. Their expectations rose when a woman told them that she had seen their father at Mira Road. But it turned out to be a case of mistaken identity.
