Runaway Maid

A resident staying in Jalan SS20/12 whose Indonesian maid ran away at 6:30am this Sunday morning, suspects that the maid is aided by another Indonesian woman who usually walks into the Central Zone every morning. This is because she has seen this woman helped another maid run away from another household before. The maid has only worked for her for one and a half months.

Please be on the alert if you see your maid speaking to this woman.
