KUALA LUMPUR: Police last week returned to the home of missing TV3 news presenter Zalina Azman for a third time, but it proved futile yet again as no new clues or leads were uncovered.
Shah Alam police chief Assistant Commissioner Mohd Iqbal Ibrahim said their latest search at Zalina's home in Section 3, Shah Alam was on July 28, conducted jointly with the Selangor police headquarters Crime Scene Investigation division (D10) and K9 unit.
"However, there was nothing that could shed light on the whereabouts of Zalina, who vanished without a trace last year," he said tonight.
Zalina, 58, was reported missing by her 33-year-old son Mikhael Norman on Nov 29 last year.
He lodged a report after failing to contact Zalina over the previous five days to inform her that her father had been admitted to hospital.
Mikhael, who had gone to the house with his uncle on Nov 29, found Zalina's car parked at the compound, but she was not there.
The house was in disarray and Zalina's purse containing her MyKad, driving licence, bank and credit cards, RM600 in cash and car keys was found.
Iqbal said there were no immigration records to show Zalina had left Malaysia and she was not listed as a patient at any hospital.
Her handphone number had been inactive for a few days prior to her being reported missing.
Zalina is 158cm tall, weighs about 60kg, with a tanned complexion.
Investigators have since recorded statements from six family members of Zalina after the missing person's report was made.
