Bio-med student, 22, missing

Update, Sunday 7pm
The girl is back home, safe and sound, according to the Star's on-line breaking news. Thank God.


PETALING JAYA: Student Siti Mariana Suhaimi, 22, who was reported missing since Friday night, has returned home, much to the relief of her parents.
The Kolej Universiti Teknologi Malaysia final year bio-medical student went missing after leaving her campus in Shah Alam for her boyfriend’s home in Klang on Friday night.
Her disappearance caused a frantic two-day search by her parents. They lodged a police report, sent out text messages to all their friends. Her missing person story was even covered by several online blogs.

The Star's updated story here.

Siti Mariana
. I have never met Capt Suhaimi Aziz, 47, but my heart goes out to him right now. He's out there looking for his 22-year-old daughter, Siti Mariana, who has been missing since Friday night. The Malaysia Airlines pilot lodged a police report at 4.15 am (Saturday) and hasn't stopped searching for his girl since. He has sent sms to all his friends asking for them to pass the message around and for people to look out for his daughter. One of his friends relayed the sms to me as I was having supper with my girls. I have just spoken to the Capt, to get more details about what happened. "I don't know what to do, except to pray and to keep looking," he said.

Siti Mariana was driving her metallic grey Kancil BHF 7472 on the way to meet her boyfriend in Klang between 7 pm and 8pm yesterday (Friday). Her last sms was to her boyfriend, sent after 6, telling him that she was on her way to pick him up. The final year bio-medical student at Kolej Universiti Teknologi Malaysia in Shah Alam never reached her boyfriend's place.

I pray that Suhaimi will find his girl, safe and sound.

It's scary these days. My neighbour has stopped her daughters from driving at night in the wake of the crime situation in the country. Let's pray everything will turn out right.

nstman,
I agree with you totally, it is scary these days. The highways can do with more patrols, especially at night. I know of an incident involving a colleague recently who is a reporter whose car was broke down in Kesas and this is in broad daylight. One motorcyclist stopped and she thought he was going to help, instead he took out a knife and robbed her of her phone, jewellery, and money. It was so daring and desperate!

NURAINA A SAMAD said...

rocky,

yes, a photo would be useful.
i will post it.
whatever i can do.
i have nieces around that age.
i worry everytime they go out. they aren't worried because somehow they think the places they hang around at are so protected, so safe.

Pray for her safety.

I had personal experience of a case with a very similar story. Not a good outcome.

People missing people running away
Young adults leave home abruptly
People kidnapped people murdered
What is progress when we sunk so low?

It could be drugs taking
Unemployed in dire straits
People never show neighborliness
One living in the fast lane
Of the marketing mantra
“Every one can make it big!”

In our country
Manual labor foreigners came
Populated the countryside
Flashing out in the malls

Do the Police have control?
You bet as well as mine
Crimes wave soaring
We gated our surroundings
The spirit of village slowly disappearing
We each live in our own neighborhood

Last week I read a posting
About Michelle Lai gone missing
She left her hand-phone behind
Now I don’t hear update
She is a 22 years old Chinese woman
Now Siti Mariana too
Aged 22 years old
It could be the same gang
Slavery in the country perhaps

The Police should set up a special task force
To catch those involved immediately
This crime has become high now
Because the police never takes it seriously
So the bad hats will continue their trade
Because every one can make it big!

Is it a crime if I catch this predator and castrate him. He will be alive,for sure, but that would prevent many deaths and worried parents. How many years will I get if I give myself up and plead guilty to magnanimous act of shortening his eligibility? I'd like to know....maybe form a vigilante group to help the police, without letting them know. Anyone joining?

remember the days when they post pictures of missing children on those tetra-pak drinks. I think er should bring back this pratice

shanghaistephen said...

Bro,
Just did a posting of these and a few other shocking crimes myself...as I said in Nuraina's the police are not doing enough !
I draw your attention to "qoute of the Day"-can't remember by whom the other day
"after all that is said and done...more IS said than done "
....thats how to best describe our good police and authorities of enforcement and our Ministers !
Cheers !

Former 22-years old said...

Bru,

Just caught the Star on-line breaking news. The girl Siti Mariani has returned home this afternoon. Unharmed. Alhamdulillah but I hope it was not a prank as we don't need one. Terima kasih.

Mr. Smith said...

What happened to her since Friday night? Where did she go? Very Funny.

Monster Mom said...

At last, the parents are no longer worried...
Whatever lies behind her disappearance, we'll just have to wait and see....

That's the update from the Star. Girl's back home. thank God. The sad truth is that whenever a girl disappears we assume the worst, and are often proven true.

The country is going to the dogs...but we can do something if we collectively want to.

I've been giving some thought to the safety of women n children in public...will blog abt it later.

Radical Scope said...

uncle rocky, picture will be very helpful. then all us bloggers can post in each blog. readers can help too (including budak2 tingkat empat, if they are still human, and are reading our blogs :p). either post it in your blog, or email. mine's radicalscope@gmail.com. hope she's still alright, though...

Pasquale said...

Rocky spoke to Veera Pandiyan of the Star and the girl is really safe, thank God!

nstman said...

Rocky, thanks a million. Be that as it may, we are thankful the girl is okay. Rocky, keep up the good work. Bravo, Rocky, drinks on the house.

J.T. said...

Thank God Siti Mariana is safe and back home with her parents.
I am sure she has a valid reason for what happened.
Thanks for posting the update.
