    'She was a complete sweetheart' : Family of Australian grandmother who has been missing in India for more than a month are optimistic of her return as local police launch an investigation

    6 November 2014

    The search for an Australian grandmother, who has been missing for more than a month in India, has been ramped up, as local authorities investigate her 'unusual' disappearance.

    Toni Anne Ludgate, 75, was on a regular trip to India doing charity work in an ashram when her family became concerned after they had lost all communications with her.

    The Department of Foreign Affairs in Canberra have sent consular officials to Bangalore, where Ms Ludgate was last seen, to help local police with their investigation.

    Her daughter, best selling author Traci Harding, who last spoke to her mother on her birthday on August 28, says she was reportedly last seen getting out of a cab with an older lady on September 23.

    'The landlord of the lodge she was staying at, had reported she paid an extra five days rent before leaving in a cab with an older lady in Bangalore. After that we never heard from her,' she said.

    Ms Ludgate's bank account had also not been touched and her ticket home to Sydney was found in the apartment.

    A 75-year-old Australian woman missing for two months in southern India was killed by the guard at her apartment and two of his friends, Indian police say.

    'Toni Anne Ludgate was a devotee of the Hindu guru Sathya Sai Baba and a regular visitor to his headquarters in Andhra Pradesh state.
    Police Inspector Venugopal says her body was exhumed on Saturday and handed over to her family.'

    Ludgate was formerly a resident of Pyrmont, Sydney but moved to India at the end of July. She went missing in August.
