Teen sisters fail to come home

Have you seen them ?

Two teenage sisters have been missing for more than four days and their anguished parents are worried that they may have been abducted.

Chen Poh Choo, 15, and her sister Poh Fong, 13, were last seen by their mother Lee Lay Ching at noon on Wednesday before they walked to school from their home in Pandamaran Jaya.

However, teachers later told the parents that the girls, in Form Two and Remove Class respectively, never made it to class.

“I was worried because they usually get home by 7pm. When my husband got home at about 8pm, we went searching around the school and also looked up their friends,” said housewife Lee, 35.

She said the girls usually walked to their school, SM Pandamaran Jaya, which is only 10 minutes away.

Lee and her husband Chen Fook Chai lodged a police report at 12.30am on Thursday after failing to locate the girls.

Chen, a lorry driver, told reporters yesterday that it was unlikely that his daughters had run away, as they recently requested to celebrate Chinese New Year at their mother's hometown in Labis, Johor.

Both the girls did not pack any additional clothes and only had RM1 each on them.

They also did not have a piggy bank, as their mother kept all their savings.

Poh Choo was last seen wearing her school uniform, while Poh Fong was wearing her school T-shirt and track bottoms.

Chen said they had no recent arguments, nor were the girls reprimanded for anything.

He added that it was unlikely they ran away together as both sisters were not close and frequently bickered.

While Poh Fong had no disciplinary problems, Poh Choo had been threatened with suspension for constantly skipping class.

“She does not skip school, but she skips classes and will be roaming around school. A teacher told me that she was warned that she might get a week's suspension,” said Chen.

Chen and Lee were speaking at a press conference organised by Klang MCA Youth chief Datuk Dr Ching Eu Boon, who said that MCA members would be asked to help look for the girls.

“If they are not traced by today, we will print posters and distribute them tomorrow,” he said.

He asked members of the public with information on the girls to call the police, Klang MCA office at 03-3167 9897 or Klang MCA Youth secretary David Foo 017-365 9897.
