Reason Semporna goldsmith went missing still unknown, says IGP

KOTA KINABALU: The reason why a goldsmith went missing in the Semporna district has eluded the police, with investigators still unable to ascertain what actually happened.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani said they had looked into various possibilities.

"There have been no calls for ransom, he has no known personal issues, he does not seem to be facing any financial woes nor have issues at work," he said during a press conference after witnessing the handing over of Sabah Police Commissioner duties here on Thursday (March 30).

He said the missing man, 31-year-old Gan Ka Keat, was reported missing 10 days ago and was last seen leaving his house and getting into a car of an unidentified person.

Acryl Sani said they were treating the case as a missing persons report.

Gan was last seen wearing a black T-shirt and black shorts with slippers and a cap when he left his house at Kampung Perigi around noon on March 20.

Semporna district police chief Supt Mohd Farhan Lee Abdullah said Gan's family lodged a missing person police report on Wednesday (March 22) at 9.15am.
