100 join search for missing girl

KUALA LUMPUR: Over 100 people from the police, City Hall, Rela and the Rukun Tetangga are joining in the search for eight-year-old Nurin Jazlin Jazimin who has been missing since Aug 22.

“So far we have no information on the girl. But we will check every nook and corner including houses, construction sites, abandoned houses and buildings and undergrowth,” said Sentul deputy OCPD Supt Zainuddin Ahmad.

“We hope that the people can assist us by providing information on her,” he said here yesterday, adding that police were investigating the case under Section 363 of the Penal Code for kidnapping from lawful guardianship.

Nurin, a Year Two pupil of SK Desa Setapak, failed to return home after going to the night market in Wangsa Maju at about 8.30pm.

Nurin’s father, Jazimin Abd Jalil said the family yearned for her return.

“She has to take her daily dose of medication,” he said.

Jazimin said the 100 SMSes he and his wife received daily since the case was highlighted in the media were of little help.

“Some of the SMSes even ridiculed me and my wife,” he said.
