Son's search for missing father continues

New Straits Times

JOHOR BARU, Sun. - Although exhausted and in despair, lawyer Roger Tan remains optimistic that he will find his father who has been missing from home since May.

And MCA vice-chairman Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting, touched by the love of this filial son, has agreed to render assistance to find the 83-year-old Tan Sue Yong.

Ong, who met Roger Tan in Kuala Lumpur last Thursday, has called on all MCA branches to be on the lookout for Sue Yong.

Roger Tan said 15,000 colour posters of his father would be distributed to MCA branches through the party's State secretariat.

"I appeal to those who see my father to bring him directly to the nearest police station," he said.

Sue Yong, who is suffering from dementia and Alzheimer's disease, went for a walk on May 23 and has not returned to his Yong Peng home since. He was last seen wearing a short-sleeved greyish white shirt and a brown pair of trousers.

He was reported to have been spotted by an express bus driver in Larkin on June 13. Prior to that, he was said to have been spotted in Lucky Garden in Yong Peng, and in Taman Melor and Taman Johor in Johor Baru.

Roger Tan has again appealed to people to stop making crank calls.

Those with information on Sue Yong can contact the Yong Peng police station at tel: 07-4671222, or the nearest police station.
