In 2014, a boy named Anurag went missing while he was three years old. The boy got separated from his family while he was playing near his house in Ghitorni. And after those constant efforts were done by his family to trace him until last Thursday. On Thursday the boy was tracked in an orphanage in Kherki Daula which is 22 km away from where he went missing. He was traced by a team of officials from Child Welfare Commission(CWC), Gurugram Lokice and Delhi Police.

ACP Preet Pal Sangwan told Times Of India that the missing cell that was formed in September was informed about Anurag from CWC. After investigation, the team found a missing child report at Vasant Kunj police station which matched the description of Anurag. Sangwan added that since the boy did not remember anything about his family or the address, it became much more difficult to trace him.
Sunil Kohli, CWC chairman, Gurugram said, “The family was taken to meet Anurag on October 15. Since the boy needed some time to mentally prepare himself before going back home, we gave him a week to adjust with the new reality of his life.” When Anurag’s parents were shown the child’s photo from 2014 by Gurugram and Delhi police, they immediately identified him.
After Anurag went missing in 2014, he was spotted roaming in DLF-2 by police officers. Police officers sent him to Udayan Care Home. The boy was recovered from there last week. Undoubtedly it was an emotional reunion but Anurag was not excited to go home and live with his family. He revealed that he has been studying in a good school and he fears that moving back with his parents might disrupt his education.
