Parmar Gursharanjit Singh and his wife Giedre Vaskyte arrived at the Intercontinental Resort on Maamunagau Island on February 12. 4 days into their holiday, Vaskyte, who’s heavily pregnant, went for a swim in the sea one afternoon. That was the last time her husband saw her.

Authorities have ended a 9-day search but her husband is pleading for more support.

Local authorities in the Maldives believe Vaskyte has been lost at sea, her husband believes she was kidnapped and is offering an $100,000 reward for information

The search for Vaskyte began after 6.30pm when her husband, who had been napping, realised she was missing

On the day she went missing, resort management began the search. Now after a combined investigation between local police, coast guards and hotel staff, which included an ariel search, surface search and diving, the search has been discontinued, with no leading information as to her whereabouts.

Local police have strong evidence to believe she was lost at sea, according to district police via the Khaleej Times. The case remains open, and her husband has put a reward of $100,000 for any information. He believes she was ‘abducted by pirates or got kidnapped’ according to the report.
