LOS ANGELES - A wave of relief swept through the Indian community as Nitheesha Kandula, a 23-year-old student from California State University, San Bernardino, was found safe after disappearing in Los Angeles on May 28. Despite confirming her safety, police have not provided further details, leaving many questions unanswered.


Nitheesha Kandula, a 23-year-old student at California State University, San Bernardino, had been missing since May 28, prompting widespread concern and public appeals for information.


On social media, Police Chief John Guttierez announced her safe return but offered no additional details about her whereabouts or the circumstances of her disappearance.


Her case is the latest in a troubling series of disappearances involving Indian students in the US. Just last month, Rupesh Chandra Chintakind, a 26-year-old student, went missing in Chicago. In a more tragic incident, Mohammad Abdul Arfath, another student from Hyderabad, was found dead in Cleveland after being reported missing in March.


The Indian community is puzzled by the lack of details from law enforcement, which is unusual unless the case involves sensitive personal matters, family privacy requests, ongoing investigations, or security concerns.


  • Date Missing: Nitheesha Kandula disappeared on May 28, 2024.
  • Confirmation of Safety: Police Chief John Guttierez confirmed her safety on social media without providing further details.
  • Community Response: The Indian community had been deeply concerned and actively involved in the search efforts.
  • Similar Incidents: Other Indian students have recently gone missing in the US, causing widespread alarm.



The safe return of Nitheesha Kandula has brought relief to her family and the broader Indian community in the US. However, the lack of detailed information from the authorities has led to speculation and concern about the reasons behind her disappearance and the conditions of her return.


As more cases of missing Indian students come to light, the community remains vigilant and calls for increased safety measures and support for international students in the US.


Nitheesha’s safe return is a positive outcome in a series of worrying incidents, highlighting the need for continued attention to the well-being of students abroad. We wish her the best of luck and request everyone to give her and her family privacy and time to recover from this trauma.
