PETALING JAYA: THE 15-year-old girl, whose disappearance on Saturday sparked a frantic search by her family and the public, was found semi-conscious in a toilet at the ground floor of a condominium block next to hers in Damansara Perdana here last night.
Ayza Nazira Zulfazli was found by a cleaner, who alerted residents at 8.30pm.
Her mother, Rosziana Mohamed, 47, said she and her husband were out looking for Ayza Nazira when their daughter was found.
"Apparently, some of the residents had asked her about us and how they could contact us. Fortunately, one of them recognised her from a missing person's poster that we distributed in the area and tried calling our numbers.
"However, they could not get us at that time. So, my daughter gave them my sister's number."
Rosziana said her sister, while trying to get her on the phone, rushed from her Damansara Utama home to pick up Ayza Nazira.
"By the time we spoke to her, she had already taken my daughter to her home."
The mother of three, who was reunited with her daughter at her sister's house, said Ayza Nazira was so weak when she was found and that she had to be carried out of the toilet by residents.
"She is dehydrated and in a daze. She's not talking and has refused to eat. We are getting a doctor to check on her," she said, adding that although she was glad that her daughter was unharmed, she was worried about her condition.
The Form Three student of SMK (P) Sri Aman here was last seen at her condominium.
On the day of the incident, Rosziana and her husband, Zulfazli Kamaruddin, 45, had left their unit around 2.45pm to go to Shah Alam.
"When we left, she was at the house. We realised that she had disappeared only when we came home around 10pm with our eldest daughter, Alya Suraya."
Rosziana said they had contacted Ayza Nazira's friends and searched for their daughter in the nearby housing area but to no avail.
"Ayza Nazira had expressed concern about sitting the Penilaian Menengah Rendah (PMR) examination, which is from Oct 2 to 8.
"Two days before she went missing, she told me that she was worried about her performance, although she had scored 5As and 3Bs in her trial exam," she said, adding that they did not pressure her.
The couple distributed posters of their missing daughter in Daman-sara Perdana and tried to use social media to find her.
They also lodged a police report on Sunday.
