More join search for missing boy

Wanita Umno has joined in the search for missing 6-year-old William Yau Zhen Zhong with its 22,000 branches nationwide distributing pamphlets and flyers.

Before that, the MCA Public Services and Complaints Department offered a reward of RM20,000 to anyone with information leading to Zhen Zhong's whereabouts.

Wanita Umno president Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil issued the directive to all branches yesterday, especially those in Perlis and Johor, to ensure sufficient distribution of the flyers, in case irresponsible parties attempted to take Zhen Zhong out of Malaysia.

Zhen Zhong went missing in Jalan Putra Mahkota, Putra Heights in Subang Jaya, on Wednesday.

Despite a thorough search, conducted by his father and police, he has yet to be located.

Shahrizat paid a surprise visit to Zhen Zhong's parents, Yau Kok Kang and Goh Ying Ying, at their home in Taman Sri Muda yesterday to offer encouragement and words of comfort.

She also appealed to whoever was holding Zhen Zhong to let him be reunited with his family, saying the best Chinese New Year celebration the family could have was to be together again.

"Drop him off at a safe place and let him be reunited with his family. They are suffering wondering what has happened to their son," said Shahrizat.

Meanwhile, Subang Jaya police chief Assistant Commissioner Yahaya Ramli said police teams were on the lookout around the Putra Heights area daily to look for Zhen Zhong.

"The task force is working round-the-clock trying to locate Zhen Zhong and I appeal to the public to assist investigations by providing information if they should see the missing boy," he said.

The National Urgent Response (NUR) alert has also not received any strong leads so far on Zhen Zhong's whereabouts, as most of the tip-offs led to dead ends.

Those with any information on Zhen Zhong can contact Subang Jaya police at  03-56319800, Sergeant Goh Lai Thang at 012-219713, Putra Heights police station chief Sub Inspector Nordin Mustaffa at  012-3150775 or Kok Kang at  016-9691616. They can also contact the nearest police station.
