PONTIAN: Abang rindu awak (I miss you). Those were the soothing words Nurul Samardayal Sakinah heard from her fiancé Mohd Ramdhan Hisham in a telephone call from Kelantan.
She said she received the call that the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) officer had been found safe and sound while she was driving from her hometown in Kota Tinggi, Johor to Kota Baru yesterday.
Nurul Samardayal, 21, said she was always confident that Mohd Ramdhan would be all right as “he is smart and knew how to stay alive”.
The couple have known each other for two years and were engaged in June this year. She said they always kept in touch via SMS or calls.
“The last time he spoke to me was on Friday. He said he was going out to sea on an operation. Later, I suspected something was wrong when he did not reply to any of my SMSes,” she added.
Nurul Samardayal, who works as a safety officer in Kerteh, Terengganu, said they hoped to get married next year. She said she took emergency leave to go back to Kota Tinggi when she was informed about Mohd Ramdhan’s disappearance on Sunday.
She added that Mohd Ramdhan’s parents left for Kelantan on Monday and she decided to drive there yesterday.
“I got his call while I was driving. I am really happy that God has answered our prayers,” she said.
Meanwhile, Mohd Ramdhan’s younger brother Kairol Hizam, 21, said his family members were elated when they spoke to him by telephone at 4pm yesterday.
“Although we were worried for his safety, we knew our brother would be able to take care of himself,” he said, adding that Mohd Ramdhan was the eldest among four siblings and had been with the MMEA for several years.
Kairol hoped they would be able to spend some time with his brother as the last time they met was only for four days after Hari Raya.
