You may have to first declare the person missing / dead and get rights to the wife to represent the children (I am assuming they are minors.). Then you can sell.

Hope missing report,FIR was lodged.

The local counsel can help to get declaration of civil death.

As much as I know, declaration of civil death cannot be obtained until 7 years has passed.
