Four girls, all of whom are cousins, from Mymensingh's Phulpur upazila have been missing for the last four days as police are continuing drives to rescue them.
The girls are Afsana Khatun, 21, her sister Sumaiya Khatun, 13, and their cousins -- Sanjida Khatun, 19, and Miftahul Jannat Ishat, 20. All of them are from the same neighbourhood in the upazila's Purbo Bakhai village.
They left homes around 9:30am on Saturday saying they had classes, said Imarat Hossain Gazi, officer-in-charge of Phulpur Police Station, adding that their families started fearing as they did not return home until the evening and their phones were switched off.
Their families lodged separate general diaries with the police station on Monday afternoon, he said.
The OC said they immediately informed Superintendent of Mymensingh Police Mohammad Ahmar Uzzaman about the matter.
Following the SP's directive, Additional Police Superintendent Joyeta Shilpi, Senior Assistant Police Superintendent Dipak Chandra Majumder and OC of Detective Branch of Police Shah Kamal Akanda already visited the spot.
Separate police teams are working to trace the girls, OC Imarat told The Daily Star.
