Bengaluru: Atreyee Majumdar, 35-year-old anthropologist who went missing on April 4, was traced to a hotel in the city on Wednesday morning.

"Our search teams were looking out for her in various hotels around the city, as her last known movements were around hotels. We managed to locate her at a 5-star in the city, but I cannot comment on her state of mind at this point," said DCP Whitefield Abdul Ahad, who was in-charge of the search operations.

Majumdar had returned from Toronto where she was pursuing her post-doctoral research with a fellowship from the Andrew W Mellon Foundation. She returned to the city on April 4 at 4:30 pm and had left her home around 9 pm the same night with only her purse in hand. She had been untraceable since that day.

Police had registered a missing complaint after her father Bilap Majumdar approached the Marathahalli Police station on April 5. The search then revealed that the PhD scholar was seen at Novotel hotel on the preceding day and CCTV footage also showed her checking out of Marriot hotel on April 6.

The police didn't reveal much on the state of mind of Majumdar, but they did say that counselors would be speaking with her soon.
