I am wondering what's next??
Interpol to help find Sharlinie
PETALING JAYA: Police have sought help from Interpol, the International Criminal Police Organisation, to trace five-year-old Sharlinie Mohd Nashar who went missing on Jan 9, although they believe that the girl is still in the country.
Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm II Mazlan Mansor said police were also working very closely with their counterparts in neighbouring countries especially those bordering Malaysia. They have been asked to be on the lookout for Sharlinie and the suspect.
"So far we have not received any positive feedback from them but we will continue with the search and use all avenues to look for the girl and the suspect,'' he said on Thursday after the handing over of a mobile police van by Syarikat Perniagaan Shahira Sdn Bhd to the police at the Seri Selangor Golf Club in Kota Damansara.
The RM60,000 van which would be used by the Kota Damasara and Sungai Buloh police was received on behalf of the Royal Malaysia Police by Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Ismail Omar.
SAC Mazlan said police and the girl's father were still receiving many calls and SMSes from the public on her whereabouts.
"We are still following up on every tip-off received and have sent out intelligence teams to investigate the information and carry out continuous surveillance in the areas where the girl had been reportedly sighted,'' he said.
However, SAC Mazlan warned pranksters not to call or send false messages on the whereabouts of the girl to the numbers provided on the posters and the recently set up 1-800-88-5464 toll-free number.
"People should only give genuine information and not take advantage of other people's grief.
"We won't hesitate to take severe action against those who give false information as they are interfering with police investigations,'' he added.
Meanwhile, Ismail said a house-to-house search for Sharlinie had been carried out at all abandoned houses and buildings in the Klang Valley.
"So far there is no progress on her whereabouts but we will continue to look for her,'' he added.
