KOTA KINABALU: The family of Mohd Hanafiee Jaffar is pleading for his safe return, after the 27-year-old full-time Grab driver went missing early Saturday (May 25) morning.
His younger sister Nur Ain, 25, urged the public to contact either family members, the police or hospitals if they find Hanafiee.
She also dismissed posts going viral on social media claiming that Hanafiee had been murdered or that he has returned home.
"That is untrue. Please stop sharing these fake messages. More importantly, please tell us immediately if you have information about my brother," she said.
Nur Ain, who lives in Kota Belud with her family, said they found out about Hanafiee's disappearance from his girlfriend.
"We only know that he was last seen with his friends. We are not sure if he had already started his Grab shift for the day. Usually he would start picking up riders after breaking fast around 4am until 7am daily," she explained.
Nur Ain said Hanafiee lives with their mother at Kingfisher, Sulaman, near here, although she was back home in Kota Belud at the time of his disappearance.
She described Hanafiee as a good person who loves gaming and added that he is the second child of five siblings.
According to the police report lodged by Hanafiee's girlfriend, his car was found parked near the Ramadan Bazaar in Indah Permai at about 12.30am Sunday (May 26).
She said the vehicle was locked and empty, with blood stains on the steering wheel, handbrake, front door and mirror.
Kota Kinabalu police chief Asst Comm Habibi Majinji confirmed that a report was received, and said that it is being investigated as a missing persons case.
