KUALA LUMPUR: More than 2,000 posters of 11-year-old Muhammad Asmawi Jalaludin have been distributed to police stations in the Klang Valley.
City police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Muhammad Sabtu Osman said that besides distributing posters, police had also started house-to-house searches for Asmawi.
He said that at the same time, they would also search for five-year-old Sharlinie Mohd Nashar.
A check with SK La Salle Brickfields revealed that Asmawi, a Year Five pupil there, had a bad attendance record, said DCP Sabtu.
DCP Sabtu, who witnessed the handing-over of duties by Brickfields (Acting) OCPD Supt Azri Abdul Rahman to Asst Comm Wan Abdul Bari Wan Abdul Khalid yesterday, urged the public not to provide false information on Asmawi.
He said that so far, only one SMS had been sent to the boy’s mother and it was from a prankster.
Asmawi went missing on March 9. He was last seen at a playground near his house in Pantai Permai, Pantai Dalam here.
