Missing hairdresser returns home

Golconda hairdresser Vidya Tambie returned home yesterday, after being reported missing for the previous three days. However, she claims to have been drugged after going to lime with friends on Tuesday evening.

In an interview yesterday, Tambie, 20, said she was frustrated and decided to go liming with friends on Tuesday after work. She said she had an argument with her boyfriend and wanted to relieve her stress.

But she said one of the men who was with her and a female friend gave her two pills - one orange and the other blue. Tambie said she then began feeling listless and high.

"I ended up staying the night with them. It took a long time for the feeling to go away. I don't know about these things. I never experimented with it before and I still don't know what happened," Tambie confessed.

She said around midday yesterday she took a taxi and returned home. Tambie said she wanted to get counselling as she was very frustrated.

Tambie's uncle said yesterday that he was glad she had returned home.

"It is really hard for us. She could have called and let us know she was okay so that we would not have had to go through so much stress. As elders we try to guide her," he said.

Her boyfriend also said yesterday that he was disturbed by the incident. The 35-year-old man, who has a four-year-old son, said despite the incident he wanted to have a family with Tambie.

"I want things to work out in spite of everything. When she was missing people were thinking the worse. The entire CID and Homicide went to the back of the house to look for her. I want her to get help and I am willing to still be with her," the boyfriend said.

Officers of the Victim Support Unit have been contacted and said they will visit Tambie to offer assistance.
