The family of Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, one of the two jailed members of Russian punk-protest band Pussy Riot, claim they have not heard from the musician for more than ten days. 

According to NME, Russia's Federal Penitentiary Service responded to the family's claim by releasing a statement saying that Tolokonnikova had been transferred to a different Penal Colony.

Tolokonnikova recently went on a hunger strike in protest of the harrowing conditions at her prison and requested a transfer from her current penal colony where she is serving out a two year sentence.

The 23-year-old was arrested and charged with hooliganism for her part in a "punk prayer" protest at a Moscow Cathedral in 2012.

Andrei Tolokonnikov, Tolokonnikova's father, spoke to Buzzfeed recently about his fears regarding his daughter:

"No one knows anything. There's no proof she's alive, we don't know the state of her health. Is she sick? Has she been beaten?"

Her husband, Petya Verzilov, also spoke out.

“They want to cut her off from the outside world,” Verzilov said.

“This is basically the only way they have to punish Nadya—‘let’s cut her off from the outside world.’”

Tolokonnikova—and fellow jailed bandmate, Maria Alyokhina, will have served their full sentences in March.
