Ludmila Tulman, Russian Restaurateur, Missing Since Tuesday


We received the following e-mail this morning. If you have any information, please help out:

My name is Masha, I wanted to let your blog know about my mother in law who has been missing since Tuesday (4/3/12) night.

Her name is Ludmila Tulman, well known in the Russian community as the previous owner of Restaurants Stolovoya/Pelmennaya on Ave U and Da-I-Net on 86th Street.

She is about 5’7, 160lbs, short red/brown hair, light eyes. Last seen on Brighton.  Left home at around 12am and never returned.   I am attaching a picture, if there is anything you can do to help us find her, it would be greatly appreciated.

You can contact me via email ([email protected]) or cell 917-699-7576.


    Best wishes for a safe return.

      Why is there no investigation? Seems like her children aren’t stirring anything up..

    • Curious & concerned

      In Brighton Beach this happened and that’s where she was found? How come it was not in the news?

    I don’t believe that she is dead.  There would have been something in the Daily or Bay news, or on the regular news.  I hope that she is ok
