A 35-year-old man is pleading to his missing Vietnamese wife, who left the family home with their daughter on June 5, to return home.
Pan Choon Luen said he and his wife, Quach My Anh, 28, had an argument a few days prior to her leaving their Pusing home with their one-year-old child.
Pan, who works in a car wash centre, said a week before the argument, his wife’s father had passed away in Vietnam.
“She wanted to go for the funeral, but due to financial constraints I did not allow her to go.
“I think she is angry with me over the matter, and left with our daughter,” he said in a press conference held by Jelapang assemblyman Teh Hock Ke at the DAP headquarters in Ipoh on June 10.
He asked for forgiveness from his wife and promised to send her back to visit her family in Vietnam.
Pan said he had left for work that day and when he returned home, he found his wife and daughter missing.
“My wife’s luggage and her wallet were missing. I believe she is still in the country as her passport is being kept by my mother.
“I even looked for her at her friend’s house in Rimba Panjang, Sungai Siput,” he added.
Teh hoped after Quach reads the newspapers, she would contact Pan or the state DAP office.
Those who know the whereabouts of the mother and daughter can contact Pan at 018-577 9394 or the state DAP office at 05-253 1532.
