As per the information, Jagmeet was on his way home from a friend’s place and was talking on the phone with another friend when he said that his car did not sound right and he would pull over to check it out and call the friend back. However, no one heard from Jagmeet after that. His cell phone, keys and wallet were found in the car.

UNITED SIKHS, CA Director, Kashmir Singh, was contacted by the family to get the community involved in the matter.  While commenting on the current situation, Kashmir Singh stated, “It is a very tough time for the family and we would like to call upon all our fellow community members to help and support in Jagmeet’s search. Nothing can be ruled out at this stage, we hope that the Police is considering all possibilities. ”

The Union City Police and the National Center for Missing Adults are already working to find Jagmeet. However, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has not been involved yet. The Department of Justice Community Relations Service and Congressman Stark have been apprised of the case. A joint letter from national South Asian Advocacy Organizations is going to be issued to the Union City Police Department offering complete community support along with a suggestion to involve FBI at the earliest in order to expedite the matters.
