KUALA LUMPUR, July 8 — The Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) launched a portal on its official website today to allow the public to obtain and exchange real-time information on missing children with the police.

Speaking at the launch here, Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Noor Rashid Ibrahim said that the “Missing Children Portal” is a platform for the public to help the police to trace those reported as missing.

“This is convenient for the public to help police find missing children by going to the website and sharing information with the investigating officers,” he said during the launch at the Bukit Aman police headquarters.

He added that the portal will also help keep the public on alert immediately when a child goes missing after their parents lodge police reports.


The public can help in investigations by sending information on a missing child through the web portal to investigating officers, he said.

When asked how investigators plan on verifying the accuracy of the information from the public, Noor Rashid said, “We will analyse it.”

According to the police statistics, there are still 338 unsolved cases of missing children since 2011.


From January to May this year, the police have found 522 out of 721 who were reported missing.
