Tado then decided to travel to Nairobi to find out what could have happened to Oduor.
He first made a stopover at Kabete Campus before proceeding to Uthiru where Oduor had rented a house.
“I first went to the institution to inquire from his friends who said it had been long since they saw him and were equally worried.
His ex-girlfriend, he says, was of great support as she led him to his son’s rental house where they found the door locked.
He wrote a letter and pushed it under the door, but two weeks later when he returned, he had not been there.
He convinced the caretaker to break the door and upon entering, they found a cooked meal of fish, which he might have prepared, but left without eating, otherwise everything else looked normal.
“His disappearance was the talk of the estate as even while buying airtime I had people talk about it, but no one had a clue what could have happened,” he said.
Tado later visited various police stations, hospitals, and morgues in a desperate attempt to establish the whereabouts of his son but in vain.
He reported the incident to Kabete Police Station. He got a printout from his mobile provider, which showed that between January 2 and 17 Oduor had been in Kisumu, unlike their previous belief he was in Nairobi.
“The last call from his mother indicated he was in Ahero, and then later that day, his phone had shown he was in Uthiru, Nairobi.
Tado says they checked with the Immigration office to find out if he might have left the country, but there were no clues to that effect.
