AFTER attending a cousin’s wedding in 2009, a 41-year-old barber abruptly left his parents residing in Malim Nawar and there have been no news of him since.
His mother Chee Yoke Foong, 66, said she had tried many times to reach Tan Hoi Chee on his mobile phone, but her efforts were in vain.
Chee said she did not notice anything unusual in her son’s behaviour during the wedding dinner.
“My husband and I were surprised that he left without a word.
“None of our relatives have any clues of his whereabouts,” she told a press conference at Keranji assemblyman Chen Fook Chye’s service centre in Kampar old town recently.
Chee further revealed that this was however not the first time that Tan had gone missing as he did that shortly after leaving school many years ago.
“After completing his studies, he disappeared for a few years.
“He only showed up when we published a notice to look for him in the newspapers,” she said.
“He only told us that he was working in Malacca and refused to tell us more,” she added.
When asked why they sought help from Chen now that her son had gone missing for four years, Chee said there were some important documents that needed his son’s signature.
Chee, however, declined to elaborate on the matter and said she hoped that Tan could come back as soon as possible.
Chen said he would assist Chee to lodge a police report.
