Mumbai, Nov.28 (ANI): A Virginian father and his daughter who were visiting India are reportedly missing after the terrorist attacks in Mumbai.

Alan and Naomi Scherr, who traveled to Mumbai with the Synchronicity Foundation, a religious group based in Virginia, have not been seen since the series of coordinated attacks occurred late Wednesday, the group's vice president told the Lynchburg News Advance.

According to Fox News, the group was hosting a meditation program at the Oberoi Hotel, one of the luxury hotels targeted by the Muslim militants.

Several witnesses reported Scherr and his 13-year-old daughter being shot in a restaurant and are feared dead.

Four other members of the group, including two women from Tennessee, were shot but are recovering. (ANI)
