KUALA LUMPUR: Information that eight-year-old Nurin Jazlin Jazimin, who has been missing since Aug 22, was allegedly seen at the Seremban rest area yesterday led police to a dead end.
Sentul OCPD Asst Comm K. Kumaran said a woman who did not want to identify herself had contacted the police and claimed that she had seen a girl fitting Nurin’s description at the rest area.
However, he said, police teams from Sentul and Seremban found the information to be inaccurate.
“We appeal to the public to verify and give us proper information.
“We cannot be going on a wild goose chase every time information is received. I believe the information given to us yesterday was false,” he added.
Nurin, a Year Two pupil of SK Desa Setapak, failed to return home after going to the pasar malam alone at 8.30pm on Aug 22.
The girl, the second of four children, usually went with her elder sister, aged nine.
Her mother Norazian Bistaman, 35, allowed her to go on her own as the pasar malam was near their flat.
Police have classified the case under Section 363 of the Penal Code for kidnapping from lawful guardianship.
