Indian expat Harini Karani was safely returned home with the help of Dubai Police, her family told Khaleej Times.

A sixteen-year-old Dubai girl who had gone missing after going on a morning walk has been found.

Indian expat Harini Karani was safely returned home with the help of Dubai Police, her family told Khaleej Times.

Confirming the news to Khaleej Times, Harini’s aunt Prerna said the girl returned home safely at around 11.30pm on Thursday night.

“We found her, thanks to the Dubai Police. She is safe and was found in the neighbourhood only. We are very much relieved,” Prerna said.

The Grade 11 student of GEMS Founders School–Al Barsha reportedly left home at around 6am and had not returned till late Thursday night. When she failed to return by 9am, her parents made a frantic call to 999 and informed the police, who came to their home and registered a missing complaint.

Previously her friends and family had put out the news on Facebook saying : “Harini is 5ft 5 tall and has long dark hair. She wears glasses and would have been wearing Black T-shirt, Black leggings. She also did not take her phone along. Her family is appealing to people living in and around Umm Suqiem 2 area — such as between Al Manara Street and Al Thanya Street, between Al Wasl Road and Beach Road — to help find their daughter.”

Thanking the community immensely for spreading the word and helping the teenager return home, her family put out another post informing all that Harini had been found.

The post read: “Thank you to the awesome community, friends and family of the place we call Home. Special thank you to Dubai police. Harini is home and safe and sound. Thank you all for keeping her in your prayers. We are overwhelmed by your love, support at prayers.”
