A 31-year-old SPG personnel posted at Congress chief Sonia Gandhi's residence, who had gone missing on September 1, was found on roaming in Lutyens' Delhi, the police said.
The security agencies were sent into a tizzy after Rakesh Kumar Verma's family lodged a complaint with the police on September 3, they added.

Verma had left home for work on September 1 but did not return home on September 2. He was off duty on September 1 but had still left home for work. He met some colleagues and was later dropped at Udyog Bhawan Metro Station, the police said.
