BELAGA, April 3: The 29-year-old Kenyah woman, who had been reported missing since Monday (April 1), was located this afternoon at the oil palm plantation where her ex-fiancé works in Sungai Asap.

According to the Fire and Rescue Department (Bomba) Belaga Station which was involved in the search and rescue (SAR) operation initiated this morning, the team along with several villagers proceeded to the oil palm plantation after receiving information that she might have followed her ex-fiancé, as his motorcycle was found there.

At 12.45pm, the SAR team found the woman working at the oil palm plantation without informing her family.

Subsequently, she was handed over to the police for further action.

Prior to this, the SAR team has searched the Simpang Sepakau farm, where she often goes to tend to the oil palm trees, but failed to locate her.

Earlier, it was reported that victim and her mother had ventured to their farm near Simpang Sepakau in Sungai Asap at about 4.30pm on Monday.

Later, the mother requested the daughter to retrieve a sickle left at home. However, the daughter never returned to the farm or home, prompting a police report to be lodged yesterday (April 2) at 3.40pm.

A SAR operation was launched this morning, involving teams from Bomba, police, Civil Defence Force (APM), and the People’s Volunteer Corps (Rela). — DayakDaily
