California, October 5

The search for the Indian-origin family, who was abducted from California on Monday, is continued by the authorities after one missing victim's truck was found on fire in a rural area outside the Merced Country.

Earlier in a statement, Merced County Sheriff's Office said that 36-year-old Jasdeep Singh, 27-year-old Jasleen Kaur, their eight-month-old child Aroohi Dheri along with 39-year-old Amandeep Singh were taken, reported Fox News.

According to the news outlet, California fire officials discovered Amandeep Singh's truck ablaze in a rural area outside Merced on Monday.

On Monday, Merced County Sheriff Vernon Warnke informed that there is evidence leading investigators to believe that the suspected kidnapper attempted to destroy evidence.

Fox News reported that authorities released a photo of a potential suspect wearing a grey sweatshirt with black sleeves and a black hood, a blue surgical mask, dark-coloured pants and dark-coloured shoes and socks.

Police have described the suspect as being armed and dangerous. The site of the alleged abduction is a roadway lined with retailers and restaurants.

"We're asking the public not to approach the suspect or victim," the sheriff's office said in its statement on Monday.

Authorities asked that people not approach the suspect or victims and call 911 if they are seen.

Meanwhile, in the year 2019, an Indian-origin techie, Tushar Atre was found dead in his girlfriend's car hours after the owner of a digital marketing company in the US was allegedly kidnapped from his posh California home.
