Woman spotted in Sentul not Zalina: police
Cops say identification checks through thumbprints show she is not the person being sought
SHAH ALAM – A woman, said to resemble Zalina Azman who was spotted in Sentul, Kuala Lumpur, is not the former TV newsreader who has been missing since November 20 last year, said Shah Alam district police chief Mohd Iqbal Ibrahim.
He said identification checks on the woman through thumbprints, found she is not the missing person being sought.
“The woman was taken to the National Registration Department at Shah Alam UTC and the result, as well as identification by family members, showed she is not the person we are looking for,” he said in a statement here today.
He said the woman had no identification documents with her when she was found.
Yesterday, police were alerted that a woman resembling Zalina was spotted at Jalan Haji Salleh, Sentul at 6pm.
Iqbal said police welcome information from the public in the search for missing persons and any further information can be channelled to assistant investigating officer sergeant Sabturia at 016-337-5269.
Earlier, Iqbal was reported as saying police believe Zalina is still in the country as checks with the authorities indicated that the woman has not left the country.
Her disappearance was realised by her son Mikhael Norman, 33, after he failed to contact her since November 24, last year, to inform her that his grandfather had been admitted to the hospital.
