According to the police, Som Soni son of Ghanshyam Soni, a resident of Allahabad, UP, went missing from home since July 2015. He was spotted by Golapara Police of Assam and admitted to the local child welfare centre there.

Telangana Additional DGP (Women Safety Wing), Swati Lakra said the Telangana State police while using Darpan to match missing children’s photographs with children found at various child homes across the country detected the said boy by matching his photos.

Immediately, TS police informed the same to SHO concerned of Handia PS, Allahabad, who in turn informed the parents of the missing child. They rushed to the child welfare centre in Golapara and identified their son.

“Telangana State Police played a major role in reuniting the missing child with his parents after five years,” said Swati Lakra. Efforts are on to trace other missing children across India through the Face Recognition Tool, Darpan, of the Telangana Police, and restore them to their family, she added.
