Looks like more and more little kids are being kidnapped nowadays. Everyone is particularly hyped up about this one too so as to not repeat the Nurul Jazlin Jazimin incident which happened not too long ago (she was found dead 120 days ago).

Police launch massive search for Sharlinie

PETALING JAYA: Police have started a massive search for five-year-old Sharlinie Mohd Nashar who disappeared from a playground about 200m from her house in Taman Medan on Wednesday.

Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said a task force headed by Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Arjunaidi Mohamed had been formed with Bukit Aman, Kuala Lumpur and Selangor police.

He said posters of Sharlinie and a photofit of the suspect involved in the attempted abduction of a six-year-old girl near her flats in Kampung Sepakat, Taman Medan, on Monday, about 2km from where Sharlinie went missing, had also been sent to all the police stations located at the borders.

The six-year old girl was found three hours later in Wangsa Maju.

He said there was a possibility that the suspect was linked to the abduction of Sharlinie and the previous cases in Kampung Baru.

“We have told them to be on the lookout for anyone trying to cross the border with a girl fitting the description of Sharlinie.

“We have also alerted all airports and our counterparts in the bordering countries to be on the lookout," he told reporters during a joint press conference with Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil at the Petaling Jaya police station Thursday.

Musa said police want to interview those who saw Sharlinie being abducted.

“The incident occurred at about 11am. At that time there were several stalls and people in the area.

"So those who might have witnessed the incident should come forward to help us identify the criminals involved in the case,” he said, adding that this would enable the police to take swift action in locating the girl and nabbing the culprits.

He said those with information on Sharlinie’s whereabouts could contact her father Mohd Nashar Mat Hussain at 016-2583450 / 016-2709096 or call the police at 03-79662222 or the Rakan Cop at 03-21159999.

Asked about the phone call and text message received by Sharlinie’s father, Mohd Nashar, Musa said police were investigating its authenticity.

“People should only give genuine information and not take advantage of other people’s grieve," he said.

Musa said that he had directed DCP Khalid to discuss with the Taman Medan Village Security and Development Committee (JKKK) on ways in which parents or an elderly person from every housing estate in the area be placed at playgrounds.

“By doing this everyone including parents and the police will be able to monitor the children,” he said.

Suria FM to provide hourly updates on missing girl

KUALA LUMPUR: Suria FM has joined in the efforts to locate missing five-year-old Sharlinie Mohd Nashar.

Chief executive officer Engku Emran Engku Zainal Abidin said the Bahasa Malaysia radio station would give hourly updates on the little girl.

“Everyone should take part in the search to help the police. We hope Suria FM listeners will help to look for the girl.

Sometimes, the media can give wrong information too:

There is no mystery woman

PETALING JAYA: There is no mysterious woman with shoulder-length hair and wearing high-heels who coaxed missing girl Sharlinie into a black car, it was clarified yesterday.

Mohd Nashar Mat Hussain, the father of five-year-old Sharlinie told reporters to disregard what his older daughter Sharliena had said the day before about a woman coaxing her sister into a car.

He was referring to eight-year-old Sharliena’s statement in the newspapers yesterday about Sharlinie being pulled into a car by a woman.

“This case is a matter of life and death. I urge the media not to publish misleading facts about my missing daughter,” he said during a brief press conference outside his home in Taman Medan here.

Mohd Nashar said Sharliena’s account was doubtful, adding that a child could easily make up stories.

Sharlinie: Reward now stands at RM100,000

KUALA LUMPUR: Tycoon Tan Sri Vincent Tan has topped up the reward for information on the whereabouts of missing girl Sharlinie Mohd Nasir, bringing it to the RM100,000 mark.

The businessman said he wanted to donate RM83,000 to increase the RM17,000 reward offer.

“I hope my gesture would help to find the girl. I join other Malaysians in praying for the safety of Sharlinie,” he told The Star here Sunday.

On Saturday, RM17,000 was put up by a group of people including MCA vice-president Datuk Donald Lim (RM5,000) and MCA Public Services and Complaints Department’s company GMH Property Sdn Bhd (RM5,000).

Lim, who is the Petaling Jaya Selatan MP, announced the amount at a press conference at the PJ police headquarters.

Tan said he hoped that all Malaysians would cooperate to find the missing girl.

I then found this today on

Celcom (Malaysia) Berhad would like to announce that it is answering the call from Dato’ Sri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, the Minister of Women, Family and Community Development by offering its mobile services in the case of Sharlinie.

Celcom will be issuing a MMS broadcast of Sharlinie’s picture together with a message urging the public to be aware of the case. The MMS will be sent specifically to Celcom customers, and we urge them to help in finding Sharlinie by sharing this message with family and friends. We are also urging other corporate bodies, NGOs and individuals to join in on this effort in the wake of this unfolding case.

I sincerely hope that they find Sharlinie before its too late.
