Faisal was last seen near the supermarket wearing a blue shirt.

Urgent help has been sought to find a 32-year-old missing Indian man suffering from amnesia.

A Keralite shop assistant at Shair Al Madina Supermarket in Damascus street, Al Qusais, Faisal Abdul Salam was last seen on September 5. Family members and social workers involved in the case are worried about Faisal’s wellbeing as he suffers from amnesia.

“He has been taking medicines for his memory loss issues for over a year,” said Faisal’s cousin Vajas Abdul Wahid. “However, due to the ongoing pandemic situation, he ran out of his medicines which he usually gets from India. We had couriered the medicines which are due to arrive any time now,” added Wahid.

Faisal was last seen near the supermarket wearing a blue shirt. He is of fair complexion, is 170cm tall with average built.

When he does not take medications for his forgetfulness, Faisal suffers slight headaches. “On September 5, he had a headache because of not taking medicines. His colleagues offered to take him to the hospital and told him to get changed. But, no one knows where Faisal went. His phone is switched off and he was last seen on WhatsApp around the same time as well,” explained Wahid.

Faisal lives right next door to the supermarket. He arrived in the UAE last year and after months of job hunting, finally found a job at the supermarket a month ago. He got his visa approved last week and was awaiting to do his medical fitness and visa stamping process.

Faisal is married and has one child. “We are desperate to find him. A few days ago, he had taken the company car to drop some colleagues in Sonapur but left it there and came back walking to Al Qusais. His memory issues make him disoriented,” said his cousin.

A missing person case has also been registered at the Al Qusais Police Station, confirmed social worker Naseer Vatanapally. “We have also reached out to police authorities in Sharjah, just in case he walked to the nearby emirate,” said Naseer.

Anyone who finds Faisal can contact the Dubai Police.
