Indian American Mom Finds Body of Missing Teen Daughter at Bottom of Cliff in Texas
- The mother tracked the location of her daughter Sri Reddy, 16, a junior at The Keystone School in San Antonio, after she didn’t find her at school pick-up.
An Indian American mother’s worst fears came true last week when she discovered the body of her teenage daughter who went missing from school. When the mom didn’t find her daughter Siri Reddy, a junior at Keystone School in San Antonio on May 4 afternoon at pick-up, she began tracking her phone, KSAT TV reported. She also informed the police of her daughter’s location in the area of Heroes Stadium on Thousand Oaks, “about 12 miles from her school,” the report added.
However, while officers were responding to the scene, the girl’s mother located her at the bottom of a cliff “in an area that was carved out by a former rock quarry,” KSAT said. While it is unclear how Reddy landed at the spot, police believe she appeared to have fallen and died of her injuries, KSAT said.
Reddy was “a member of the National Honor Society, an award-winning member of the school’s Science Fair team, a member of the Upper School robotics team, and contributed to The Keynote,” according to a statement released on Reddy’s death by William B. Handmaker, head of The Keystone School. Reddy actively participated in school performances. “Last year, she sang ‘Vedrai Carino’ by Mozart at Music Fest at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, and she sang in the cast of the Upper School musical ‘Grease,’” the statement read.
