Cops sparing nothing
PETALING JAYA: Police will deploy all methods at its disposal to trace Sharlinie Mohd Nashar and her abductor while the reward for information on her whereabouts has increased to over RM20,000.
Petaling Jaya Police Chief ACP Arjunaidi Mohamad said police would use all the methods available including hypnoteraphy and psychology.
"We welcome cooperation from the public to help find Sharlinie.
Whatever the methods, we have to try them," he said.
Hypnotheraphy was used by police when invesitgating the abductions of Nurin Jazlin Jazimin, 8, and Mohd Nazrin Shamsul, 5, last year.
Mohd Nazrin or Yin was found safe after missing for two weeks while Nurin Jazlin was found murdered a month after her abduction.
Arjunaidi said police believed Sharlinie was being hidden as members of the public had reported sighting her in several districts.
Police have mounted a massive search for Sharlinie, distributing her posters and photofits of the suspect all over the country, including at the border.
He said police did not rule out the possibility that Sharlinie was abducted by the same suspect responsible for abducting and murdering Nurin Jazlin in September last year.
Nurin Jazlin's father Jazimin Abdul Jalil, 35, claimed that the photofit of the suspect was about 70 per cent similar to the suspect wanted for her daughter's murder.
Meanwhile the rewards keep on pouring, including from GMH Property (RM5,000), MCA Public Complaints Bureau chief Datuk Michael Chong (RM2,000) and an anonymous businessman (RM5,000).
The rewards offered have increased to more than RM20,000.
