BIDOR: A Malaysian woman who worked in Singapore has been missing ever since she was deported a month ago.
Machine operator Chang Foong Yee, 42, did not contact her family after being released from Singapore's Changi Prison on Feb 4 this year, according to her mother, Liew Mee Moi.
“I learnt from her landlord that she was detained in Singapore since July last year because her work permit had expired.
“I only visited her in prison once, a few weeks before Chinese New Year.
“She told me not to worry as she would return to Malaysia soon but until this day, I have not received a single phone call from her,” Liew said, adding that Chang's phone could not be reached.
The 72-year-old housewife was speaking to reporters at her house in Kampung Baru Tanah Mas here on Friday and said she had yet to lodge a police report.
“I just hope she could give us a call and tell us where she is,” she added.
Chenderiang assemblyman Datuk Dr Mah Hang Soon, who learnt about Chang's case in early March, said he had written a letter to the prison.
“The authorities have confirmed that she was deported to Malaysia, so we want to bring this case to the public's attention, to help locate her.
“I will also advise the family to lodge a police report on the matter,” he said.
