MCA Public Services and Complaint Department, and the Malaysian Crime Prevention Foundation are using a different approach to find eight-year-old Nurin Jazlin.
Department head Datuk Michael Chong said they will seek the help of foreign workers at construction sites.
“So many other means have been tried, so this time we decided to target the foreign workers,” he said.
“These workers may be able to lead us to locate the missing child,” he added.
Chong said more than 10,000 pamphlets have been printed for distribution to the workers in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.
“We will go around and meet these workers to alert them about the missing child. There may be a chance that they might be able to locate her,” he said.
Chong said if Nurin has been abducted, she could be anywhere and alerting more members of the public will increase the chances of finding her.
Chong also offered a RM2,000 reward for anyone who finds Nurin. He advised the public not to increase the reward amount.
“If we keep on increasing the reward, then it becomes habitual. This is not healthy because it invites more crimes,” he said.
Nurin, a Year Two pupil at SK Desa Setapak, failed to return home after going to the pasar malam in Section 1, Wangsa Maju, at 8.30pm on Aug 20.
Normally, Nurin would go with her sister but that night, her mother had allowed her to go alone thinking that it was safe as the pasar malam is only 500m from their home
Nurin suffers from high blood pressure and kidney problems and her parents fear that her health might worsen without her medication.
