PETALING JAYA: The wife of missing Pastor Raymond Koh Keng Joo hasn’t slept since Monday.

She has been crying for her missing husband and fears for his life.

Susanna Liew Sow Yoke is appealing for help to locate the 62-year-old Koh who was abducted by a group of masked man along Jalan Bahagia, between 10.30am and 10.45am on Monday.

In a tearful interview with The Star, Liew said she couldn’t sleep because she was worried for him.

“I don’t know what is happening. I appeal to whoever has taken him not to harm him.

“He is a good husband, father and pastor who helps the poor,” sob­bed Liew, 61, as she related her ordeal.

The last time she saw her husband was when she was babysitting at a friend’s house at a Puncak Damansara condominium in Kam­pung Sungai Kayu Ara, Petaling Jaya, at about 10am on Monday.

Liew recalled that his last words to her were “I love you”.

“He said he was in a hurry to get to his next appointment and I have not seen him since then.”

She said her husband was heading to Kelana Jaya to deli­ver belacan to their friend who was going back to Medan, Indonesia.

“He never made it to the house,” said Liew, who only realised her husband had been abducted, at about 8pm.

She said that when she and her son tried to call Koh’s handphone, it went to voicemail and WhatsApp messages were not received by him, indicating his phone was switched off.

From what she has pieced toget­her from different people, her husband was confronted by a group of hooded men in four or five SUVs along Jalan Bahagia, near SMK Kelana Jaya that morning. She said they told her that her husband was accosted and bundled into a black van and taken away.

He was wearing a polo neck beige T-shirt and dark grey pants when he was abducted.

Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Fadzil Ahmat confirmed on Tuesday that Koh was abducted and police was investigating the case.

No ransom demand has been made so far.

Liew said her husband has no enemies and was involved in a lot of church charity and community work with a group called Harapan Komuniti which he founded more than 10 years ago.

“We are all praying for his safe return,” said Liew.
