Fate of missing teledrama actor unknown

Police have so far failed to ascertain the whereabouts of teledrama actor and film star Upali Keerthisena, who went missing more than nine months ago.

His family members said he had left for Anuradhapura with some friends and never returned.

At the time he was wearing an expensive gold chain and the Welikade police obtained a statement from one of his friends with whom the missing person had last spoken on his mobile phone.

"We could not obtain any vital clues from his friend," police said.

Police after obtaining permission from the Court examined the bank accounts of the missing person and funds were not missing.

Popular teledrama actress and film star Damitha Abeyratne said that police should conduct an in-depth investigation into the disappearance of the actor.
