Police working on theory William Yau fell into monsoon drain

SUBANG JAYA: Could six-year-old William Yau have fallen into a monsoon drain and was swept away into the Klang river?
This is one of several theories police are working on after they discovered the drain some 200 metres from where William went missing in Putra Heights.
Tarred road leads to the drain from the place where William ventured out of the car while his parents went into a shop to look at washing machines on Jan 16.
Police with Drainage and Irrigation Department staff found the drain while combing the area days after William disappeared.
"The discovery indicates that William could have fallen into the drain and swept away by strong currents," Subang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Yahaya Ramli said.
"However, it is too soon to make a conclusion as we are exploring all angles," he said when contacted.
Police will interview residents in Bukit Lanchong again with the hope to find more clues.
"With our search operation concluded, we will focus the investigations on how William might have ended up in Kampung Sungai Sireh, Klang," he said.
ACP Yahaya also appealed to anyone who might have seen William after Jan 16 to come forward.
"We will record further statements from the parents and other family members," he said.
