A Tamil man from Mannar has been reported missing by his family this week.
Thirty-year-old Antonis Nimal who is employed as an outreach officer at the Nanattan divisional council was last seen leaving for work on Saturday morning.
His wife reported him missing to Murungan police on Saturday night as he had not come home by 11pm, and family members say he had still not returned two days later.
Police said they had no information about any suspicious incidents or personal problems but that the missing man’s details had been circulated among police stations across the North.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.
Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
