A GRANDFATHER is looking for his 14-year-old granddaughter who is believed to be residing in Australia.

Retired housekeeping supervisor Lim Hock Huan, 80, is worried for his granddaughter’s health, especially in the Covid-19 pandemic.

“After her parents separated, my granddaughter Lim Wen Yi migrated to Australia with her mother in 2012. I lost contact with my ex-daughter-in-law and my granddaughter since then.

“I tried writing a letter to her but it got sent back to me as they apparently no longer stay at the last known address.

“I am concerned for Wen Yi’s safety and health as she is too young to be able to take care of herself properly.

“I always think about her and feel bad for her misfortune to be separated from her father and me, depriving her of our love.

“Now with the pandemic, I really want to know if she is safe and healthy, ” he said.

“I earnestly appeal to relatives or friends who have Wen Yi’s mother Wong Kee Seeng’s contact to pass me the information so I can keep in touch with them, ” he said.

Lim can be reached at 016-315 9129.

State welfare committee chairman Phee Boon Poh said he would appeal to Wisma Putra to use diplomatic channels to help Lim locate his ex-daughter-in-law and granddaughter whom he believed migrated to New South Wales, Australia.

“At the same time, we will use social networks to assist too, ” he said.
