Doll may give valuable clues
Police said the doll which was found near the home of missing five-year-old Sharlinie Mohd Nashar has been sent to the Chemistry Department for examination.
The police hope the clues on the doll, which was found last Saturday, could help them in investigations, according to the Star.
Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Arjunaidi Mohamed said they are expecting the results on the fingerprint tests soon and were also liasing with their Perak counterparts on a doll that was left in Gunung Rapat, Ipoh.

According to the Star police are puzzled as another doll similar to the one which was found near the house of Sharlinie Mohd Nashar in Taman Medan last week, was found in Ipoh.
Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Arjunaidi Mohamed said police were trying to find out the significance of the doll, which was reported to have been seen in an area in Gunung Rapat, Ipoh.
"We don’t know who took the photograph of the doll and are now trying to trace the person as it had been passed on from one person to another until it reached us a few days ago.
"Initial investigations show that the photograph is not re-shot from the photograph of the doll which was highlighted in the press or our photographs,'' he said here on Friday.
ACP Arjunaidi said that the Petaling Jaya police have contacted their counterparts in Perak to help them verify the authenticity of the photo and locate the person who had snapped it.
"We urge the person to come forward as every bit of information is crucial to us,'' he said.
