PARENTS often fear that their children will go missing from home. They dread not knowing their whereabouts even for a day, let alone for weeks, months or years.
The parents of missing 8-year-old Nurin Jazlin Jazmin, or Kak Ngah as she is affectionately called, have high hopes that she would be reunited with them this Hari Raya ("Raya dresses await Nurin" - NST, Sept 15).
It is their hope, as well as that of other parents, that whoever is keeping her do not harm her in any way.
The distribution of posters, with the aid of the Malaysian Crime Prevention Foundation, will hopefully lead to the child being found.
Although many previous cases of missing children have remained unsolved, with public tip-offs, I have confidence that the police will be able to solve this case and return the child safely to her parents.
In the meantime, I hope Malaysians of all races and religions will pray for Nurin's safe return.
