NUR Alert out for William Yau
People -- we have failed Nurin, Nadhirah and other little angels. Let's not fail 6 year-old William Yau who went missing on Wednesday (Jan 16) at Jalan Putra Mahkota 7/6c in Putra Heights.
Let's join the search for him. His distraught parents Yau Kok Kang and Goh Ying Ying are praying for his safety and safe return. The nation joins them.
William went missing after he and his family -- parents, older brother, Eric, 7 and younger sister Cindy, one - had dinner in Puchong to celebrate Eric having been made class monitor.
According to The Star - on the way home, Yau and Goh stopped at an electrical shop in Putra Heights to look at some washing machines.
They locked their children, including in the car, leaving the windows open.
When they returned about 15 minutes later, William was nowhere to be seen.
According to Eric, William had gone looking for their parents because Cindy had started crying non-stop.
Of course, Yau and Goh are beside themselves for leaving their kids in the car. But you know, nothing is more punishing for your action than your child disappearing...
Help has come in a huge way for the family, with the political parties, NGOs and the community helping the police search for William.
The police has triggered NUR Alert but I'm not sure when they did that. Let's hope it was within 48 hours of the missing person report on William.
Let's hope William is in safe hands. Let's hope he will be returned safely to his family.
Let's hope too that this kind of help goes to the next missing child.
Remember, people -- Nurin's rapist and murderer is still at large.
