10-year-old Girl Missing at Night Market

25 October 2007

A 10-year-old Standard Four schoolgirl has gone missing after she had left her Kampung Kolam home along Acheen Street to a night market on Sunday at 9pm. Her stepfather, 49-year-old Ahmad Omar, had given her RM5 to buy a VCD there.

Recka failed to return home and Ahmad called his wife, 41-year-old Salma Sellamah Abdullah, who was working at a factory in Bayan Lepas at 4am. The couple and some of their neighbours went searching for her on Monday. They lodged a police report on Tuesday morning at the Central police station.

Recka was wearing a white t-shirt with an “Ultraman” cartoon character print and a pair of shorts. She is a student of Sek Keb (P) Island in Penang.

Police are urging the public to contact the Rakan COP hotline at 04-2691999 with any information on the missing girl.

A poster has been created which can be printed and distributed to alert the public of Recka’s missing. Go to the MCW Forum thread to download (Acrobat PDF document, 66KB).
