Cops worked with various agencies in efforts to locate Zalina Azman

SHAH ALAM: The police have made several efforts to track former TV3 personality, Zalina Azman, through cooperation with various agencies including the Immigration Department, the Health Ministry, the Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM) and telecommunication companies.

Shah Alam police chief Assistant Commissioner Mohd Iqbal Ibrahim said the work could take time and require certain processes before getting any results.

Prior to this, he said the police had already conducted investigation after receiving a report about the victim's disappearance end of November last year.

"We have reached out to JIM, KKM, SSM and telecommunication companies. What we can say is that there have been no movement abroad made by the victim (Zalina) and no medical treatment given to the victim at any hospital. The victim's phone number has also been inactive since her disappearance.

"As such, the police has decided issue a statement (on the missing person) to help with the investigation," he said when contacted today.

"The police did not delay in making the announcement. We had to check with several relevant agencies first, in an effort to track the victim."

He said efforts to track down the victim had already been carried out prior to the statement being issued.

Mohd Iqbal said this to address public query as to why it took eight months since the victim's disappearance for the police to issue the statement on missing person.

It was previously reported that the police were actively searching for the former TV3 personality, who was reported missing since November last year.

Mohd Iqbal said they received a report from Zalina's son, Mikhael Norman, 33, on her disappearance on November 29 last year.

Zalina was reported missing after Mikhael failed to contact her since November 24, 2021 to inform that her father had been admitted to hospital.
