Initial police investigations revealed that one of the girls had been unhappy with her mother and decided to run away from home

"The girls ran away from home as one was not happy with the way she was being treated by her mother," Mohd Zani said.

The girls will be sent for a medical check-up after they have been interviewed by police.

Previously, Divyaa's mother had taken to Facebook to appeal to the public for help in finding the two teen girls who went missing

Shanthi Theshaja took to Facebook to make the appeal earlier yesterday, 15 April.

In her post, Shanthi said the two girls - one of whom is her daughter - had been missing since Sunday, 14 April night from around 11.40pm.

Their last seen location was at Maxwell Towers Condo in Gasing Indah, Petaling Jaya.

The two teens had gone to a temple to celebrate the Tamil New Year

"Divyaa then spent some time in Natshatra's home, which is 10 minutes from our house," Shanthi told The Star.

"Around 11pm, she texted me that she was taking a Grab home but she never came home."

The security guard at Natshatra's condo allegedly told the parents that the girls had walked out of the vicinity together

"It is possible they decided to walk back because they were only 10 minutes away," Shanthi said in The Star report.

According to New Straits Times, Divyaa had also told her mother that her phone was running out of battery.

However, the Grab ride was cancelled and Divyaa did not return home that night

In a statement, Grab said it was aware of the case and that it had launched an internal investigation into the matter.

"Unfortunately, according to the system the ride was cancelled by the passenger and our driver-partner proceeded to his next job - so we don't have further details on their possible whereabouts," the statement on the official Facebook page read.

"We have reached out to the family to offer whatever assistance we can. We are also working with PDRM and is supporting the investigation in every way we can."
