    A member of the public informed the police on Thursday that he may have spotted Tej near St Huberts Vineyard in Coldstream around mid-day on the day he went missing.

    Signal data located his mobile phone in Healesville on the morning of April 27.

    The search effort for Mr Chitnis has since concentrated on Toolangi in the Yarra Valley. Yesterday, a search party walked the streets of Healesville and Yarra Glen, appealing for any information.

    His family have also conducted further searches in the Yarra Valley region, and near Geelong and Ocean Grove, where he attended university.
    His car is still missing as well.

    My son and daughter-in-law live in the Geelong/Ocean Grove area so I've let him know about Tej's disappearance and sent him the media links.

    I hope that that was unnecessary and he arrived home to hug his mother on Mothers Day yesterday.

    There has been no word through Main Stream media regarding any sighting of Tej, nor has there been a sighting of his VW 2005 Silver Golf car.
    Searches have focused on the Healesville area of Victoria where the last ping of his phone registered at approx 11:30am on the day he went missing, and they have been asking locals and placing posters in the area.

    'With every passing day, we fear more for Tej's safety', says Jayant Chitnis - Radio Podcast

    "People can't vanish like that," said Tej's aggrieved father Jayant Chitnis, adding, "the car hasn't been found, the mobile phone is switched off and his bank account hasn't been touched".
    According to Mr Chitnis, although the police is still treating this as a missing persons' case, but they have no leads to work on, and "the longer it takes to find out about Tej's whereabouts, the more worried we become. We hold grave fears for his safety," he said, speaking to SBS Punjabi program today.

    The parents of missing Burwood East man Tej Chitnis only recently discovered that their son had not attended classes at Deakin University for up to two years before he vanished on April 27.

    It is understood that detectives investigating the disappearance of the popular 21-year-old had found he had been absent from a health science course at Deakin's Geelong campus since 2014.

    This sounds like he's missing on his own terms.
    If he hasn't been attending classes that could mean that he had to figure out how to continue this charade. It might appear that the time was coming that he was gonna be found out.

    Strange he hasn't touched his bank account AFAIK though. Maybe he's been squirreliin away some cash. I presume he and his parents would lose face if he came clean. Hopefully, he's just a very naughty boy and will come to his senses and return home. Otherwise, he may have met with foul play via other's (or his own) hands.
