First of all you can file the police complaint regarding the stolen articles to show your bonafides
Thereafter file a divorce case before the court having competent jurisdiction (it can be the place where you reside or where you both were last residing )..

In a petition for divorce, your sister should get the notice served on your brother-in-law, and it becomes a issue as he has absconded. His last address, before it is too late, can be used. You can file it in family Court.
