Speaking to MS News, the OP, Hidayat Nordin, shared that he and a friend spotted the motorcycle at 2.30am on the PIE after the exit at Bedok North towards Changi.

His friend was driving while Mr Hidayat was a passenger in the car.

 

There was a group of people attempting to move the vehicle. After a while, though, they vacated the area.

This left Mr Hidayat, his friend, and another motorist to direct traffic while searching for the missing rider.

Mr Hidayat added that his friend called the police at 2.33am regarding the incident.
