The J-K Police on Tuesday evening traced the “missing” British national who had gone missing in Leh last week.
Yasmin Milner went missing on July 15 after arriving in Leh. Soon after Milner went missing, Police had launched a search operation to find her.
A senior police official said that due to breakdown in the “telecommunication” the woman couldn’t contact her family for several days.

“She told us that after arriving in Leh, she couldn’t find the guesthouse where she was supposed to stay and also she couldn’t talk to her family because of the breakdown in mobiles and Internet in the town,” said the official.
“Subsequently, she went to attend a meditation course in a nearby centre where she stayed in a guesthouse. We managed to trace her on Tuesday evening and she is in a good health.”
To trace Milner, the family had created pages on social networking websites. On Tuesday, the family confirmed on the Facebook that Yasmin has been located.
“My sister has just made contact with my office in London — she (sic) been found safe and well! She is with the Leh police, thank you all so much for your help and support!! We are so relieved!!,” reads the post.
According to the family, Milner had traveled from New Delhi to Leh via flight AI445 on July 15. They say that Milner, however, didn’t turn up at the Yangphel guesthouse in Leh where she had to stay and also didn’t make any contact with her family since then.
A plea posted by the family went viral on Facebook and Twitter.
