Missing 14-Year-Old Girl Last Seen In Bukit Batok On 21 Sep Afternoon
When a child goes missing, it usually concerns Singaporeans more as it involves a young person who may be vulnerable.
Not to mention the strain on their parents, who might fear their child has fallen into a dangerous situation.
That should apply to the 14-year-old girl who’s been missing for almost 1 week.
She vanished last Tuesday (21 Sep), and was last seen at Bukit Batok West Avenue 8.
Girl missing for 6 days
She was last seen on 21 Sep at about 2pm.
That means she’s been missing for more than 6 days – though it’s uncertain why the alert was sent out only after so long.
Last-known location in Bukit Batok
Her last-known location was the vicinity of Bukit Batok West Avenue 8.
The road is fairly long, and bypasses several HDB estates, schools like Dulwich College and Le Quest Shopping Mall.
It also stretches from Bukit Batok Central Park all the way to Bukit Batok Hillside Nature Park.
It’s not been revealed where specifically she was last seen.
Police appealing to public for help
The police are appealing to members of the public to help find Natalie.
Those who may have spotted her or have information of her whereabouts are encouraged to call the police hotline at 1800 255 0000.
Alternatively, they can submit information online via iWitness.
All information will be kept strictly confidential.
2nd missing teen in 1 day
This is the 2nd missing teenager the police appealed for info on on Monday (27 Sep).
Earlier the same day, they issued a similar alert on a 13-year-old boy named Brian Tan Zhi Yong.
He disappeared on Friday (24 Sep), and was last seen with a bicycle in Farrer Park.
Hope for happy endings to the cases
The disappearance of any person would be of great concern to their loved ones.
While some missing persons have turned up safe and sound after a short while, the whereabouts of others have remained a mystery for years.
For their loved ones’ sake, let’s hope the recent cases of teenagers gone missing will have happy endings, and they’ll be found soon so they can reunite with their families.
