KLANG: Two teenage girls who were reported missing last Wednesday have been found.
Police found Chen Poh Choo, 15, and her sister Poh Fong, 13, at about 2pm in Taman Sentosa, living with a Nepali believed to be the boyfriend of one of the girls.
South Klang OCPD Asst Comm Mohamed Mat Yusop said the girls had been sent to hospital to receive medical attention.
“It is not known yet why the girls left their home.
“We have yet to investigate the foreigner. Let the police investigate and avoid listening to hearsay,” he said, adding that the girls had records of skipping school in the past.
The girls, who were present at the news conference, shook their head in refusal when ACP Mohamed asked if they wanted to go home.
He added that the girls would either be spending the night at the hospital or at a shelter. Reporters were barred from speaking to the girls.
Poh Choo and Poh Fong were reported missing at midnight on Thursday after they were last seen at noon on Wednesday before they walked to school from their house in Pandamaran Jaya.
Outside the station, the girls' father, Chen Fook Chai, said he had yet to see his daughters.
“The police told me my daughters have been found but I have not met them,” he said.
He admitted that his girls had disciplinary problems in the past but denied abusing them.
“They skipped school and had some disciplinary issues but nothing serious,” Chen said.
According to a source, the Nepali was detained by the police at 5pm yesterday.
The man, in his 20s, was believed to be living alone at a shoplot in Taman Sentosa for the past few months. His job is, however, unknown.
