10-year-old Chin refugee missing in Malaysia
07 January 2013: Parents and community leaders are still searching for a missing Chin refugee boy named Thang Tung Mang in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
The 10-year-old son of Kham Suan Mang and Cing Ngaih Nuam, originally from Tedim Township in Chin State, Burma has not been seen since around 10pm at his home in Pandan Indah on 5 October last year.
Pa Kung, who contacted the family, said they still hoped to find their ‘lost’ son despite making as much effort as possible with the help of Chin refugee community over the past three months.
Thang Tung Mang, who is a UNHCR registered refugee, has got difficulty in hearing, according to an alert issued in a weekly newsletter published on 30 December 2012 by the Alliance of Chin Refugees (ACR).
