KUALA LUMPUR: A family is seeking the whereabouts of their family member after he had gone missing for nearly a month.

In a statement on Tuesday (June 25), the MCA Public Services and Complaints Department said that the missing person, 61-year-old Fong Poh Ket from Cheras, had last been seen by family members on March 31.

"The family contacts him at least twice a month. On May 29, his mother tried calling him to invite him for dinner but he did not answer his phone.

"Normally he would return missed calls on the same day but there had been no response," the statement said.
