KUALA LUMPUR, 5 Nov 2016:
Noor Ayrill Aqasha Noor Shahril, who was reported missing from home since Monday, was found safe this evening.
His father, Noor Shahril Yusmarizal, 39, said the boy was found by a brother of Noor Ayrill Aqasha’s friend, Mohd Ismail Abdullah, 15, at a bus stop in Ampang here.
He said his ex-wife informed him that Noor Ayrill Aqasha had been found. “I was looking for my son when I was informed he was safe. I am extremely thankful he is safe,”
The police had earlier launched a search operation to find a 10-year-old boy who was last seen in Jalan Jejaka 9, Taman Maluri, Cheras here on Monday, before being reported missing.
Cheras police chief ACP Chong Kok Sin said the father of Noor Ayrill Aqasha lodged the missing person report on Thursday. “The boy was said to have not returned home since Oct 31.”
The search for Noor Ayrill went viral on social media after his parents sought netizens’ help to find their son.
Enjoying life as a vagrant and fearing the scolding he might get from from his father were said to be among the reasons Noor Ayrill was believed to have left home.
Cheras District Police chief ACP Chong Kok Sin said the finding was made based on statements recorded from the boy’s father, Noor Shahril Yusmarizal, 39, and his mother, Siti Rohayu Yaacob, 37, at the Cheras District police headquarters on Sunday night.
“Investigation revealed that the boy boarded a Rapid KL bus to Pudu to meet a friend, known as Ari, 13, in Chow Kit. He stayed at the home for the homeless for several days and refused to go home because he enjoyed getting free food from the public every night.
“With no money to spend, Noor Ayrill Aqasha boarded the free Go-KL bus to go to his mother’s house, but he did not know the way and found himself lost until he was found yesterday,” said Chong, when contacted.
