TORONTO: Even as the Australian media quoted his family and friends saying that the search for Indo-Canadian Prabhdeep Singh Srawn (Jandali), who went missing in a national park in Australia in May, has been stopped, a Facebook message by his family on Sunday refuted it.
A post on the page Help Find Prabh Srawn said, “There have been no decisions made by the family to call off the search. ABC needs to check its source before writing articles.”
Australia’s ABC News reported on Sunday that the family and volunteers were stopping search for the missing Indo-Canadian because of the onset of the snowy season.
Twentyfive-year-old Prabhdeep Singh Srawn, who was studying law at Bond University in Gold Coast in Australia, went hitchhiking on a peak inside Kosciuszko National Park in New South Wales on May 13, and he has not been seen since.
A trained reservist with Canadian Forces (CF), Srawn comes from Hamilton near Toronto.
The family and friends of the Indo-Canadian young Sikh were joined by Canadian forces in an extensive search for him last month. The family and volunteers, who continue to search for him, have offered a reward of $100,000 to find him.
