It took a video on social media, that too from Pakistan, for techie Maidam Prashant’s family to know where he was, more than two years after he went missing.

Thirty-year-old Prashant, who was working as a software engineer with a private firm in Madhapur, had left home on April 11, 2017, saying he was going to office. Neither did he come back, nor was there any communication from him after that.

“There was no communication at all for the last two years. After failing to get information about him from his friends, we lodged a complaint with the Madhapur police on April 29, 2017,” Prashant’s father Maidam Babu Rao, a private employee, said here on Tuesday.

Rao’s family, hailing from Visakhapatnam, is staying at Bhagath Singh Nagar, Phase-I in Kukatpally.

“Through the media, we came to know about our son’s details. We thank God that he is alive,” Rao broke down, urging the government to use its good offices to bring his son safely to the country.

After completing his BTech, Prashant went to Bengaluru in 2010 and worked in a firm there before returning in 2013, to work in Madhapur.

In the 1.03-minute video, which gives no indication of when it was shot or where exactly, Prashant is seen saying he is fine and that ‘the police in Pakistan brought him to the court from the police station’.
