The management then lodged a complaint with Peelamedu police which registered a missing case and began the search.
According to police, Jagadeesh was not interested in staying in the home and had informed his parents about it.
Police have sent photographs of the two to all stations and were collecting CCTV footage of railway stations and bus stands.
