Search is on for missing Malaysian teen

Soon Jia Liang.

PETALING JAYA - A search is on for a 13-year-old boy who has gone missing since Tuesday from his apartment in Seri Kembangan.

Over 60 people from the Selangor Community Policing Association are now looking for Soon Jia Liang at cyber cafes, fast food joints and other places.

Jia Liang was missing when his mother Yip Kuan Yee, 38, returned home at 6.30am to their home in Putra Ria apartment.

Yip said she left Jia Liang and his elder brother at home at 6am to send her 11-year-old daughter to a nearby school. Her husband had also left the house for Johor Baru earlier.

Yip said, when she returned, she was shocked to find Jia Liang missing along with his clothes and handphone.

"I asked my 14-year-old son to look for him at a sundry shop nearby but he was nowhere to be found.

"An image of him walking by the store at around 6.04am was captured by a closed circuit television recording," she said.

Yip said she alerted her husband who immediately returned home.

"We have been desperately looking for Jia Liang since then," she said.

The family has lodged two police reports since Tuesday.

Yip said Jia Liang had complained of a headache when she woke him up to prepare for school on Monday and had told him to rest at home.

Those with information of Jia Liang can contact Kuan Chee Heng (019-2316 666) or the Serdang police at 03-8074 2222.
