Tan Sue Yong has been missing since May 23 and his family have conducted an extensive search for him.

They have placed “missing persons” advertisements in all the English, Malay and Chinese newspapers.

“We have also put up posters in public places, sought help from the police, Rela, Rukun Tetangga and every other association we can think of.

“My family, especially my 76-year-old mother is extremely worried about is well-being and we have almost exhausted all avenues we can think of,” Roger said.

On May 23, the elder Tan, who suffers from dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, left his home in Lorong Enam, Yong Peng, for his routine daily walk in the afternoon but never came home.

This is the second time Tan has gone missing. In 1998 he took off on his old motorcycle and was found two days later in Malacca.
