Patmanathan Kokilavani holds a photo of her two children at a protest site for loved ones of the disappeared in Mullaitivu, Sri Lanka. Patmanathan Kokilavani is missing her two children, Patmanthan Piratheepan and Patmanathan Tharsika. They were separated in a chaos of a bombing May 17 2009. She was detained in a refugee camp after the attack and was released September 2009, and then checked everywhere for them. She got confirmation that they were at one military camp but was denied access to see them. In 2016 a person from the military came to her home and told her that they were going to be released, but it didn't happen. "Just show me my son and daughter once. You can keep them but just let me see them once and give me some peace. I'm spending all my money to find them, I can't sleep, I'm crying every day. I have no strength left. Keep them but please just show me their faces once time."
