With no money left to go back home, at 11 pm, they entered a restaurant in Periyar Salai, Vadapalani seeking a job.

Seeing they were in school uniform, the restaurant owner informed the police. The patrol police reached the spot and found out the identity of the boys. Meanwhile, the police also found that their parents had lodged missing complaints at Villupuram police station 8 July.

The boys had told the police that they wanted a job as they did not have money to get back home.
