SUNGAI PETANI – Nineteen year-old Malaysian student Nur Shakinah Naim, who has been missing in France for five days, has re-emerged at her lodgings in the city of Rouen.
This is according to her father, Naim Awang, 48, who was relayed the news by a Public Service Department (PSD) officer who visited his house this evening.
“We are happy that the officer brought good news that my daughter has returned to her lodgings. Alhamdulillah, my wife and I are relieved by the news,” he said when contacted this evening.
He has, however, yet to speak with his daughter. Nur Shakinah, an engineering student enrolled at Universitaire de Technologie (IUT) Rouen in Normandy was reported missing from her lodgings at around noon on Sept 25.
Her housemate reported the matter to the Malaysian Embassy the same night and a report was also lodged with local authorities.
Naim said he and his wife, Nor Halizah Ahmad, will leave for Paris on Saturday as scheduled to meet with their daughter.
He expressed his thanks to caring Malaysians who had prayed for his daughter to be found. Naim also urged that there be no speculation on the five days that his daughter went missing.
“We are just happy that she has come back. Allow us to get a clear picture regarding the whole situation,” he said. – NST
