KUALA LUMPUR - A mother is pleading for the return of her two daughters, who have been missing since Sept 2.
Single mother Yap Thay Ying, 57, said she last saw her daughters - Fong Poh Yit, 19, and Fong Poh Chu, 17 - when they went to a photocopy shop in Taman Maluri that morning.
"I left my daughters to wait near the car and I wasn't gone for more than 15 minutes. But when I returned to the car, my daughters had vanished.
"As a single mother, they are my world and I wish to see them again," said Yap, who works as a hawker.
She believes that her daughters could have been lured away by a man known as Ah Keong, whom they first met when she was renting his stall in August.
She claimed that when she went to see him the day after her daughters disappeared, he was dismissive of her questions.
"He told me - 'Why worry about your daughters now? They are happy now. They are old enough'," she said.
Yap said when her daughters went missing, they did not have their MyKad with them but were carrying their handphones. However, all her calls went unanswered.
Meanwhile, MCA Public Services and Complaints Department chief Datuk Seri Michael Chong appealed to those with information on the sisters to call 03-2203 3888.
