You should first file a complaint a before the police reporting that your wife is missing. Let the Police initiate their investigation and you must cooperate with the Police in the investigation. In case your wife is discovered at her parent's place, her family will not be able to do anything. In such a situation if your wife refuses to leave her parent's place, you can file for restitution of conjugal rights.
If her parents have initiated legal action against you, you need to cooperate with the Police and in a case you apprehend a possible arrest, you can file for an anticipatory bail under Section 438 of the Code of Criminal Procedure.
