PETALING JAYA, Malaysia - "You can take anything from me but leave me, my family and my baby (alone)," read the last post by the mother of 15-year-old Ng Yuk Tim before the girl was found dead.

Sim Yee Ling, 35, posted the message on her daughter's Facebook wall at 4.30pm after her daughter had been missing for more than 24 hours.

She also spent the entire day yesterday desperately searching for her daughter at the Kelana Jaya LRT station, where she was supposed to have taken the train back to their home in the residential area of Bandar Tun Razak.

Meanwhile, the man suspected of killing the teenager posted a photograph of her on his Facebook page, urging people to help find her early yesterday morning.

The 23-year-old wrote the post at 1am, after the mother lodged a police report about her missing daughter.

In the post, the man called on those who might have information on Yuk Tim and knew of her whereabouts to contact her mother.

The photo showed Yuk Tim sitting with another girl and the suspect had even circled her image.

"Everyone please help find her. Her mother is looking for her. She came over to my house to help me make Cosplay helmets. As I had to leave for work, I sent her to the LRT station. If anyone has any info, please contact her mother. Everyone please try to search for her. She is wearing the same clothes seen in this photo," read his first post.
