MCA branches to display William’s picture
KUALA LUMPUR: MCA has ordered all its branches nationwide to display the picture of six-year-old William Yau Zhen Zhong in an effort to trace the missing boy.
Party president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek said William’s photograph would be displayed at its 3,000 branch offices throughout the country.
“We pray that he is safe and can be returned to his family as soon as possible. We also appeal to those who may be keeping William to surrender him.
“We do not believe he would have gone missing in such a sudden manner,” he told reporters after chairing the MCA presidential council meeting at Wisma MCA here.
It was important, said Dr Chua, for everybody to work together in finding the boy.
In Malacca, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has joined concerned Malaysians in appealing to those holding William to return the child safely to his distraught family.
Holding a poster of the boy from a copy of The Star, the Deputy Prime Minister appealed to those with information of his whereabouts to quickly report to the relevant agencies, including the police and the welfare department.
“I sympathise with William’s family and hope all caring Malaysians will pray for his safe return,” he said, urging for a concerted effort to locate the boy, who was reported missing since Jan 16 in Putra Heights, Selangor.
He was speaking at a press conference at SMK Tun Haji Abdul Malik in Cheng, near here, where he distributed the RM100 school aid yesterday.
