Kuala Lumpur, July 2 (ANI): A Malaysian Indian man and his Chinese wife have taken up the Herculean task of searching for their lost daughter, Nisha Chandramohan, on themselves, a month after the Malaysian authorities failed to trace her whereabouts.
According to the Star, Nisha was reported missing after she was taken out by her aunt, who is mentally ill, from the victim's grandmother's house in Mentakab in Pahang.
Her mother Wong Lai Lan, 21, said that their only child could have been found the day she disappeared if a system such as the proposed Nurin (Nationwide Urgent Response Information Network) alert was in place.
"If there had been road and neighbourhood blocks, if the word had gone out faster, she could be back with us now," Wong said.
Modelled after the Amber alert in the United States, the Nurin alert was mooted in 2007 following the brutal murder and sexual assault of Nurin Jazlin Jazimin, eight, whose body was found in a sports bag.
Both Wong and husband G. Chandramohan have stopped working since June 4 to search for her.
"We set out early in the morning and come back late. We are sure someone is keeping her. We have to keep looking and show people Nisha's picture," the paper quoted Chandra-mohan, as saying. (ANI)
