PETALING JAYA: A businessman has offered RM50,000 for information leading to the safe return of 12-year-old Nayati Shamelin Moodliar, who was abducted early Friday morning.
"I will help in whatever way I can. What is RM50,000 compared to the safe return of the boy?" the businessman, who wished to remain anonymous, told news portal Malaysian Digest.
It was reported that Nayati, who was still in his school uniform, was abducted by two men in a black car at 7.35am on Friday near Mont'Kiara International School.
The social media was a beehive of activity since news of Nayati's abduction broke out, with the latest being a Facebook page set up by his family called "Please Help Us Find Nayati Moodliar".
In an update posted on Sunday, the family said that efforts to obtain information on Nayati's whereabouts were underway and urged the online community to not speculate and spread rumours, for fear that it might hinder Nayati's return.
Despite this, the family had initially chosen to keep mum over their plight as they anxiously waited for the latest news on the boy's whereabouts.
On Sunday, Nayati's friends were also spotted near the school distributing posters and flyers, while it was reported that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had also tweeted about Nayati, appealing for the boy not to be harmed. He also told the Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar to investigate the matter.
Twitter also joined the campaign with several active trending topics, including #FindNayatiMoodliar. Posters of the boy, in different languages, continued to appear all over Kuala Lumpur and areas in the Klang Valley since Friday to help trace him.
As of yesterday, Malaysian Digest had dedicated a space on their website at www.malaysiandigest.com to galvanise efforts in finding the boy.
As part of their "Bring Nayati Home" campaign, they will be tweeting reminders every hour to assist in locating him. They hope for their readers to retweet them in return as frequently as possible.
They also urged members of the public to assist by spreading word on the campaign via Facebook and through other forms of communication.
Those with information are urged to contact the Travers police station at 03-2282 4222. You can also call the Malaysian Digest at 03-2094 5898 or email them at email@example.com.
