Looking for Nini….

The search of pre-schooler Sharlinie “Nini” Mohd. Nasyar has gone into overdrive-mode, since her abduction from a playground near her home on 9 January 2008. The Petaling Jaya Selatan Police have already searched in over 10, 000 homes in a door-to-door exercise.

The NST has the story:


More than 10,000 premises checked

PETALING JAYA: Police have visited more than 10,000 houses and buildings in the district since 5-year-old Sharlinie Mohd Na-shar was abducted on Jan 9. It is understood that they have drawn up a list of locations in the district which could have been used as a hideout by Sharlinie’s abductors.

District police chief Assistant Commissioner Arjunaidi Mohamed said yesterday: “Searches were conducted at premises in which Sharlinie could have been held captive. In some places, however, we interviewed occupants.

“Some of the premises were chosen using police intelligence while others were subject to follow-up operations after tip-offs.”

It is learnt some of the locations checked were near Sharlinie’s house in Jalan PJS 2/C, Taman Medan. However, police also identified and visited premises beyond this area.

Meanwhile, the remand order on a maid detained for giving false information on Sharlinie’s whereabouts has been extended till tomorrow.

The 27-year-old Indonesian maid was picked up at her employer’s house in Johor Baru on Jan 14 after she sent text messages to Sharlinie’s parents, saying the girl had been abducted out of revenge.

Following her arrest, the woman was taken to Petaling Jaya police headquarters and remanded for three days.

The prank calls by the maid had hampered investigations as police had to follow up on her claims.

However, Arjunaidi said the number of prank calls had fallen and that information received by police was genuine but inaccurate.

On a report where a woman claimed she had spotted Sharlinie in a van along the Cheras highway on Saturday, he said checks showed that the registration number of the van was false.

Meanwhile, Bernama reports that Sharlinie’s father, Mohd Nashar Mat Hussain, is willing to accept the help of psychics in trying to trace the girl.

“I am willing to accept any kind of help to find Linie. If any psychic wants to help, I will give my full co-operation. Maybe this method can help find her,” he said when met at his home yesterday.

Mohd Nashar said various efforts had been made to trace Sharlinie but none had worked so far.

Also present at Mohd Nashar’s house was Shamsul Ghazali Shamsudin, the father of Muhammad Nazrin, more affectionately known as Yin, who went missing while on a shopping trip with his parents at the Sogo shopping complex in Kuala Lumpur on March 31 last year.

“I can understand what the family is going through. In my case, I was fortunate to get Yin back. I urge all Malaysians to give their co-operation to find Sharlinie,” he said.

The effort is apparent. Today, this blogger saw a Selangor Police patrol car along the LDP Highway off Damansara Utama, having the famous coloured poster of Nini and the prime suspect, on the rear windscreen, as part of the operations campaign. The same posters were on the glass screen door of the Damansara Utama Police Station, which is about 8 miles north of the operations area.

This morning, 200 General Operations Force personnel were deployed in the door-to-door search around PJ Selatan area. According to Petaling Jaya OCPD ACP Arjunaidi Mohamed, this additional personnel would enhance the Police capabilities operation.

This case has also gained personal attention of Women, Community dan Family Development Minister Dato’ Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil and IGP Tan Sri Musa Hassan. Prime Minister’s wife Datin Seri Jeanne Danker visited the family of Maal Hijrah day.

We hope the Petaling Jaya Police, under ACP Arjunaidi have another effort up their sleeves, in case this operation failed. Till then, we are still keeping our fingers crossed, pray to Allah s.w.t. for the early release of the girl to her parents and may Allah s.w.t. give strength and courage to parents Mohd. Nasyar Mat Hussain and Suraya Ahmad, in these trying times.
