He said the victim’s younger sister confirmed that it was her older sister’s body, based on the clothes the woman was wearing before leaving the house four days ago.

On that same date, the victim’s father made a police report regarding the disappearance of the woman, and her vehicle was found with personal belongings in a car that was still locked in an open area near the Port Dickson District Administration Complex.
