JOHOR BARU: Secondary school student Low Mei Ling (pic), who was suspended from school last week, has been missing for the past five days.

Her mother Tan Yok Ching, 51, fears the worst.

“I last heard from her at 7pm on Friday when I called her on her mobile phone.

“She said that she was at a shopping mall in the city with some friends and that she would be sleeping over at her friend’s house,” she said, adding that Mei Ling, 15, had looked unhappy the night before.

Tan, who is a single parent, said she did not think that her daughter, the youngest of four siblings, had run away as both of them shared a good relationship.

“We always share our problems with each other.

“However, when I tried to cheer her up on Thursday, she told me not to bother her,” she said at a press conference organised by Johor MCA Youth Public Service and Complaints Bureau deputy chief Rodney Soon.

Tan was even more shocked to discover that her daughter had been suspended from school since last Wednesday.

“I was told that she was penalised because she had failed to hand in her homework.”

Tan hoped that her daughter would call her soon and return home.

“I miss her terribly and am very worried for her safety,” she said.

Soon urged those with information about the missing girl to contact him at 019-7713 912.

Johor Baru (South) OCPD Asst Comm Zainuddin Yaakob said police were working hard to finding Mei Ling.

“We also hope that members of the public inform us should they spot her,” he said.

He urged anyone with information to contact the police hotline at 07-2212 999 or the nearest police station.
