GEORGE TOWN: She did not like the dinner served at her home and went down from the family’s apartment unit to buy roti canai at a shop on the ground floor.
Twelve-year-old Sasha Syun Ee (pic) has not been back since stepping out from her home at Taman Sri Pinang here at around 6pm on June 16.
Tuition teacher Tan Syie Mooi, 54, said she started to worry when her daughter did not return by 8pm that day.
She said Sasha had returned from school at about 4.30pm after extra classes.
“My husband brought dinner for her. However, she did not like the food and decided to buy food downstairs.
“We later went to the shop and the workers told us she had not bought anything from them on that day.
“She left her handphone and MyKad at home as she did not expect to be long. None of our neigbours have seen her,” a distraught Tan said at a press conference called by the Penang MCA public service and complaints bureau here yesterday.
Also present was the girl’s father S. Kalimuthu, 50.
The family lodged a “missing person” report when the Year Six pupil still did not return home on June 17.
Tan said she gave her daughter RM50 on the day she went missing for her school bus fee.
The bus driver, however, told the family, that he had not received the money.
Kalimuthu said a few weeks ago Sasha stayed out with a friend until early morning without telling them.
“We called her friend but she told us she did not know anything.
“We love and miss Sasha. Please come back soon,” pleaded Kalimuthu.
Bureau head Gui Guat Lye said they would follow up with the police on the matter.
Those with information on Sasha’s whereabouts can contact Tan at 016–476 8506 or the Penang MCA office at 04–226 7827.
