(MUNSTER) - Munster Police are looking for a "person of interest" in connection with the March 21st disappearance of eye doctor Promila Mehta-Paul.
Sergeant Steven Kovacik says the person of interest is Promila's 38-year-old son Paresh Paul.
Investigators say Dr. Mehta-Paul's disappearance is now being treated as a homicide. Dr. Mehta-Paul did not show up at her office in highland on March 22nd and gave no notice that she wouldn't be coming in.
Sergeant Kovacik says Paresh Paul was with his mother the night she disappeared and gave inconsistent statements when questioned by police. He then reportedly left the area.
Police say they determined that Paresh Paul was a "person of interest" after they conducted several searches of Mehta-Paul's house in Munster. The police have ruled out other family members' involvement in her disappearance.
