New lead in Sharlinie case

Finally, a new lead in Sharlinie case - on five-year-old Nini (pix right), who has been missing since Jan 9.

Frankly speaking I think we've lost her. There is no trace of her at all. We still do not know her whereabouts. I mean she has been missing for more than two months and nothing much has come out of the investigations carried out so far.

I feel guilty for not blogging about her of late because, like most bloggers, I was got caught up in the frenzy of the general elections and its aftermonth. Okay, okay that was inexcusable but in the first place news on her was not forthcoming.

Anyway, here's the latest on Nini from the Star:

Police to seek US help

Police are expected to send DNA samples of a suspect identified in the abduction of Sharlinie Mohd Nashar to their counterparts in the United States soon.

Federal CID director Commissioner Datuk Mohd Bakri Zinin said the suspect has not been caught yet but has been identified.

"We obtained a DNA sample from the suspect and we will send it to the United States for further tests once we have approval to do so," he said but declined to comment further on their findings.

Comm Mohd Bakri said police would continue their search for Sharlinie and welcomed any information on the girl from the public but not false information.

"We will not hesitate to take action against those who provide us false information or those who spread rumours through SMS. It will hamper our efforts to locate Sharlinie.

"And please think of Sharlinie's parents and family members. We don't want to mislead them or give them false hope," Comm Mohd Bakri said, adding that police will also check on false information received via e-mail, letters and phone calls.

He said it is not possible to give constant updates on developments made in Sharlinie's case and other cases as it could hamper investigations.

On Jan 9, Sharlinie went missing when she was abducted on her way home from a playground in Taman Medan.

Sharlinie, who turned five on Jan 30, was with her elder sister when it happened

This is rather confusing. Got the suspect, who has been identified, had sample of his DNA taken, and yet he HASNT BEEN CAUGHT.

Why like that one?

If he hasnt been caught where is he? wONT he get suspicious the fact that his DNA has been taken? Surely he's wondering why?> And if he knows, he might just run away...far far away.

Dont understand lah.

If they think that he's the suspect, what are they waiting for? Why all of a sudden they need US expertise? Previously they mentioned about cooperation with some Univ about profiling.... don't they have atleast one?
