KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 8 (Bernama) -- The family of Nurin Jazlin Jazimin, who disappeared after she went to a night market in Section 1, Wangsa Maju, here on Aug 20, plans to hold special prayers on Tuesday in conjunction with the girl's eighth birthday.
Her father, Jazimin Abdul Jalil, 33, said his family celebrated Nurin's birthday every year but this time it would be just prayers for her safety.
However, the family was not sure where the prayers were to be held, he told reporters Saturday.
Earlier, Jazimin received RM5,000 from Restoran Ali Maju Sdn Bhd managing director Jawahar Ali.
With the contribution, the reward for anyone who can provide information leading to Nurin being found has risen to RM18,000.
The company had also produced 50 banners, with Nurin's picture printed on them, to be strung around Wangsa Maju and at all the restaurant's outlets in the Klang Valley.
Meanwhile, a police spokesman said efforts to find Nurin were still focused in the country.
Police have been receiving information as to Nurin's whereabouts, with some people claiming that they had seen the girl in Perak, Penang and other places, he said.
