The Commonwealth Games Security Department has been alerted after a third Sri Lankan athlete has reportedly gone missing from Sri Lanka’s contingent at the 22nd Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England.

According to the Deputy Chef-de-Mission Gamini Jayasinghe, an athlete from Sri Lanka’s Wrestling Team has reportedly gone missing having earlier tested positive for COVID-19.

The missing wrestler was set to compete in his first-round event of the wrestling competition on August 6 but was transferred to the Commonwealth Games Medical Centre after testing positive.

He was later set to be released after he cleared the second random test, but when the Sri Lankan team management arrived to pick him up from the centre, they found the athlete was missing.

Earlier, a Sri Lankan judoka and an official of the Judo Team were also reported missing.

The Commonwealth Games Security Department is investigating the disappearance of the athletes from the Games. (NewsWire)
