This is 5 year-old Muhammad Nazrin Shamsul Ghazali. Fondly called Yin, he went missing after visiting the Sogo Complex in Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman on March 31.Yin had gone to the complex with his father, 34, and mother, Nur Amizah Ahmad, 25. Nazrin was with his father in the men’s department store when he disappeared.
On Friday, Nur Amizah viewed Sogo’s closed-circuit television footage for the first time, showing Nazrin walking confidently out of the complex. In the 17-minute footage, Nazrin was first spotted at 2.48pm when he played near the escalator on the second floor. He then followed the crowd and took the escalator to the ground floor. About 3pm, he was seen walking towards Jalan Raja Laut. Nazrin was wearing a grey-boxed short-sleeved shirt and a pair of blue jeans at the time of his disappearance.
Until today, Yin is still missing.
His father Shamsul Ghazali, from Medan Klebang Restu in Chemor, Perak, has offered a reward for information on Yin and can be contacted at 012-5090451.
Note: Our hearts and doas for the parents. Moga-moga Yin selamat dan sihat dan dapat ditemui. As a parent I empathize with them. We went through quite a similar traumatic experience many many years ago at Sunway Pyramid. We were in a shop browsing through the shirts and what not when suddenly we realized Arissa, then 3 year old, had gone missing. Both Yan and I thought we would die that instant. Luckily, we found her a few minutes later. We we so traumatized then that we went straight home and did not venture into any shopping malls for almost two years thereafter.
