IPOH - The three children, who were reported missing by their single mother on Tuesday are believed to have been found.

The children's uncle, Saiful Azril Ishak sent out messages to journalists noting that they have been found at about 10pm on Wednesday night.

The message had read "Salam kawan2. Terima kasih semua. Anak buah aku dah jumpa. Mlm nie buat report pengesahan jumpa" (Hi friends. Thank you all. My nephews and niece have been found. Will make a confirmation report tonight)

Sharafuddin Syazwan Rizauddin, 11, Syarir Syafi, eight and Syauratul Syafiah, six, went missing for more than 24 hours since Tuesday from their home at Taman Meru 2B between 2pm and 6pm.

The children's mother, factory worker Safarela Azwa Ishak, 36, was frantic at the initial disappearance.

There were however two conflicting sources, one which noted that the children were found in Ipoh while another claimed they were found near Gombak.

Several attempts to contact Saiful Azril failed as he declined to pick up the calls.

DCP Paramasivam also could not be reached for confirmation on the case.
