ALOR SETAR, Jan 18 (Bernama) -- The family of the female teacher who was found yesterday after she was reported missing in Balik Pulau, Penang last Monday, has appealed to all parties to give Nur Farhana Ibrahim space to calm down.
Nur Farhana's eldest brother, Ahmad Fahmi, 45, said after his 27-year-old sister was found, her husband, Muhammad Naim Mahyadin, 30, took her back to their home in Alor Senibong, Langgar near here.
"My sibling and I have not met her since, as her husband has requested that she be left alone to rest. Perhaps when she is more stable we will visit her,” he told reporters when met at his home at Kampung Sematang, Kuala Kedah near here, today.
Ahmad Fahmi said he was shocked to learn that Nur Farhana, the fifth of six siblings, would go missing though she had earlier complained she was tired of commuting between Alor Setar and Penang to go to work.
He said their father, Ibrahim Abdullah, 71, who has been paralysed for over 11 years was aware that his sister had gone missing but he had remained silent.
The media had earlier reported that the Sekolah Kebangsaan Genting, Balik Pulau teacher was feared missing after she failed to return home in Alor Setar on Monday and was absent from school the next day.
Yesterday, Kuala Kangsar district police chief ACP Razali Ibrahim confirmed that Nur Farhana arrived at the Kuala Kangsar Police Station alone, on foot at 3.15pm.
