The Hon Julie Bishop MP: Please help us find Toni Ludgate, an Australian Citizen missing in India.

My name is Traci Harding, and for the past two months, my mother, Toni Anne Ludgate has been missing in the Bangalore / Puttaparthi region of India.
Puttaparthi is a tiny little town and the local authorities do not have the resources to execute a thorough investigation. All the information regarding my mother’s last movements have been uncovered by myself and the Sai Baba Search Team that we have on the ground in Puttaparthi. Yet we do not have the authority to direct the investigation or cross-examine witnesses - we need Federal HELP!
It is just over two months since I last heard from my mother, or since there was any movement in her bank accounts, so our fears for her safety are growing daily and time is running out! Toni was in Puttaparthi doing charity work, as she has done every year for quite some time. She is a seasoned traveller and has always kept family well informed of her movements. Toni would never go away for such a long period without communicating that this was her intention. Her bills have been left unpaid for the first time in her life, and she has now missed her flight home and outstayed her visa - my mother would never allow these things to happen, thus I fear she is in grave peril or worse! She is a deeply humane person, and deeply loved by all who know her, both here in Australia and in India, where she wished to live out the rest of her days in service to others.
If we are to have any hope of finding any trace of my mother we need Indian Federal Government and Indian Federal Police involvement, AND Indian Consulate personnel to oversee the investigation in Puttaparthi.
Please lend your signature in support of our cause and help us let the Australian Federal Government and Indian Federal Government know how important it is to find my MUM!
