A family’s cry for help to locate missing man
A Malaysian family is seeking the help of Singaporeans to help locate the whereabouts of a man who went missing in Singapore on January 8th at about 10am.
37-year-old Nelson Ng was last seen at a condominium in Kovan where he was staying with his sister Joanne Ng. His brother drove him to Singapore where he was due to undergo his routine check-up at the Institute of mental Health (IMH).
His brother, Stanley Ng, has taken to social media to appeal for the help of Singaporeans to locate his brother who suffers from cognitive disability after he sustained severe brain damage in a car accident 3 years ago.
Nelson lives in Johor Baru with his family but came down last week so that he could go for his routine check-up- but went missing after he left his sister’s condominium where he was last seen on the 8th of January 2016. He is not carrying his passport nor any credentials and money.
Ms Joanne Ng, who lives in Singapore, told The Straits Times: “(Nelson) comes to Singapore for cognitive remediation about once every four months.
“I was supposed to take him to IMH that day… but when I went home in the afternoon after work, he was missing. The condominium caretaker told me they saw him leave.
“We are worried sick.”
The 39-year-old commercial sales manager added that her brother is mobile and able to manage himself but does not know directions.
“He can communicate but he has short-term memory and is slow to react,” she said.
The family has made a police report. Mr Ng is about 172cm tall and weighs 70kg. It is not known what he was wearing when he went missing- but his family suspects that he was wearing his typical outfit- a T-shirt, shorts and Crocs.
