The search for Tanvi Marupally is receiving attention on a national scale



Conway, Arkansas – Tanvi Marupally, 14, has been missing for 48 days; her last sighting was on January 17 when she was last seen leaving Conway Junior High School.

“With really no explanation of what happened, where she is, it’s like she vanished into thin air,” Angeline Hartmann, Communications Director for the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, said. “Everybody that we’ve told about this case wants to do what they can to help Tanvi, to help this family.”

Throughout the past few weeks, police and members of the community have been actively searching throughout Conway.

“The National Center believes that all children, all missing children should be looked for,” Hartmann said. “All these communities should rally for all the children.”

Hartmann said that although the community has leaped in to help in the search, there is concern that Tanvi may not be in Arkansas; as a result, a fresh strategy may aid in the search.

“Her story will pop up whether you are expecting it or not,” Hartmann said. “You can’t just scroll past it.”

In Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Tennessee, information about Tanvi and her abduction will start to appear on gas station screens on Monday, March 13. Hartmann is hoping to locate someone who may have observed something in those busy places.

“Every time a child is missing, that’s everybody’s child,” she said.

Tanvi has been missing for 48 days, yet it only takes one person to stop the trend from continuing.

“That’s huge, because if she has left if she has been taken outside of Arkansas, the more eyes on this the better,” Hartmann said.

If you have any information on where Tanvi may be, you’re encouraged to call the Conway Police Department at (501) 450- 6120.
