KUALA LUMPUR - A 25-year-old man is feared to have been abducted by robbers who drove off with his mother's car whilst he was sleeping in it, at the Petronas station after the Bukit Jelutong toll plaza.

Student recruitment worker Iskandar Zulkarnain was fast asleep in the back of the white Subaru XV at around 7pm on Thursday, on the way home to Sungai Buloh.

His mother Riswati Rahmat, 55 pulled over by the side of the highway near the station.

"She wanted to use the washroom but there were a lot of cars parked at the station so she left Iskandar and the car at the side of the road.

"When she came back around 10 minutes later, the car and my brother was gone," said Iskandar's elder brother Fairuz Borhan, 33.

He said calls to Iskandar's phone has been switched off and calls to his mother's phone which was also left in the car were unanswered.

"We tried looking at the CCTV footage in the station but the car was parked in a blindspot so we don't know what has happened. "But I think the car was stolen with Iskandar in it," said Fairuz, adding that the family had lodged a police report at the Shah Alam police headquarters.

People with information on the white Subaru XV with the plate number WXQ 191 are encouraged to contact the police at 03-55202222.
