Two of the three members of the Sri Lankan contingent who were reported missing from the Commonwealth Games village in Birmingham have been located by the British police.
Sri Lanka’s National Olympic Committee Secretary General Maxwell De Silva told foreign media that the British police had located two of the missing members but their details have not being revealed to Sri Lankan officials.
He said “In fact we had contacted the British High Commission but they would not tell anything”.
A wrestler, a judoka, and a judo coach out of 161 strong contingent comprising athletes and coaching staff had reached Birmingham obtaining visas for nearly six months.
Following the disappearance of the three members, NOC officials removed documents for all remaining members of the team currently at the games in Birmingham.
Sri Lankan officials had earlier told media that Birmingham police are on investigation on the disappearance of the three members.
Sri Lanka has won three medals thus far at the Commonwealth Games, including the impressive achievement of Yupun Abeykoon, who won the bronze medal in the men’s 100m as the fastest man in South Asia and the only representation from the region for the most competitive event.
