Teen goes missing for two weeks
The 14-year-old's mother Rubita Anak who lodged the police report on April 20 said her youngest son was believed to have gone out with his friends at around 2.30pm on Apr 19 and did not come home again since.
"I have searched for him in and around the Kg Pasir Putih area in Putatan and those in the area told me that they always saw him with his friends known as Ayau, Tomas and Botak," she said.
She was also told by some of the boy's friends that they saw him in Megalong in Donggongon.
She believed her son has no money and might have lost his phone which would explain why he could not come home.
In fact, she said, this was not the first time that her son went missing.
"However, the first time he did this, he lost his phone and he came home after spending a night somewhere," she said.
Thankfully, the boy, known among his friends as Awin or Awie, seems to be doing fine as he kept his Facebook page updated and communicated freely with his friends.
The last entry on his Facebook was last Friday when he told his curious friend that he is now working in Kota Kinabalu.
"I don't believe he is working. He is only 14. Who would hire him? His MyKad is with me anyway.
So if he gets into trouble, the police would call me," she said.
Rubita pleaded with her son to come home because she and her family are extremely worried about him and for his safety.
"Maybe he is afraid I might hit him for doing this. But any mother would be happier to see her son alive and safe.
If he is worried because he lost his phone, please don't be. Phones, we can replace and buy anew.
We only want him home," she said.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts has been urged to contact Rubita at 012-8305014. - Tracy Patrick
