A man in Kluang, Johor is pleading with Malaysians to help find his 57-year-old father who went missing on 31 August
Writing on Facebook last Thursday, 1 October, Jacky Su Kai Lun said his father has been missing for over a month now.
He was last seen on 31 August when he went out to meet a friend at 8.30pm.
The father, named Su Kim Chang, went out riding on a blue motorcycle bearing the number plate JKJ5720 and was wearing a black and grey striped T-shirt that night.
Throughout this period, Jacky has been tirelessly going to palm oil farms, riverbanks, forests, mining lakes, and abandoned buildings, hoping that he would find his father.
The month-long process is starting to wear his spirits, but he insists to press on because, according to him, "If I stop (searching), who else would help me find my father?"
At the time of writing, Jacky's post has gone viral with over 18,000 shares.
It is learned that Su is a retired police officer and the Criminal Investigation Department (JSJ) has since launched an investigation into the matter
Kluang district police chief DSP Abdul Razak Abdullah Sani said efforts to search for Su around the town, including the person Su set out to meet, have been futile and the police are still at a loss in figuring out the cause of his disappearance, reported Harian Metro.
According to Abdul Razak, Su went out to meet his business partner in Taman Kahang Baru that night.
Jacky said it has been a difficult month for the family and that he wakes up every morning hoping that everything was just a dream
"But after I get up, I still have to face the reality. I need to find my father for my family and bring him home safe," he said.
"Every time I go to the riverbanks, I hope to find you, but I am afraid that it is your body that I find. So I keep telling myself that it's not necessarily a bad thing if I fail to find my father in the mud of the riverside."
"As long as I don't see the corpse, my father might still be alive. Although I know the odds are very slim, I just hope a miracle will happen!"
Jacky said he needs his father back because there are young children in the family and he needs his father's help to take care of them.
