April somehow opened with a slew of missing cases. Last week, a 14 year old girl apparently ran away from home and was found a little over a day. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for 22-year-old, Hyeon Chia (谢旻容) who went missing last week.
Hyeon has been missing for nearly a week now and her family has been frantically trying to find her. Some suspect she may have been kidnapped. Drastic actions have been taken, including Singaporean actor Wang Lei (王雷) offering to pay RM150,000 for her safe return.
Hyeon is a life insurance planner from Gombak, Selangor. She was last heard from at 7pm on 5th April. Hyeon had apparently messaged her family and boyfriend saying she was going to Johor Bahru. The message stated she was going to apply for a new job there, told them not to contact her and not to be worried about her safety.
However, her family became concerned when they didn’t hear from her again after a few hours. They reported her case to the police and later discovered her car which had been abandoned near the area. Her boyfriend stated there had been nothing indicating Hyeon was in trouble. Additionally, he confirmed that Hyeon had no financial problems and was performing well in her company.
Her parents have clarified that Hyeon did not take her things with her for the supposed trip. They also stated that she had yet to quit her current job. As such, they believe she didn’t have any intention of leaving her home. However, they are concerned that Hyeon has been taken against her will and is a victim of human trafficking or has been tricked into going abroad.
Singaporean actor Wang Lei’s most recent live broadcast was an appeal for Hyeon’s safety. He apparently does not know Hyeon or her family personally, however his friend does. “Please contact your family or boyfriend,” he said, addressing his statement to Hyeon. “If you can’t find a job, come to Singapore and find me, I will definitely hire you.”
However, Wang Lei also did not rule out the possibility of Hyeon being taken against her will. “If someone kidnapped her, just let her go,” he said. “If you let her go, I will give you RM150,000 immediately. I just want Hyeon to go home safely!” Wang Lei also offered RM110,000 as a reward for information on Hyeon’s whereabouts.
Actor Wang Lei isn’t the only one offering help in finding her. Many have been spreading her information in hopes of widening the net.
Our hearts go out to her family. We sincerely hope the additional assistance will help bring Hyeon home safely.
