Mrs Chee said that she did not know when Angie Chong departed for Thailand until she saw Angie’s Facebook posting. She could still contact Angie Chong until June 1, 2023, when she lost contact after Angie sent her a good morning text.
For context, Angie worked in Klang, and even though she is not at home, her mother mentioned that she is rarely unreachable.
Angie’s mother said she started contacting her back after the news of her missing had gone viral.
“Only she can contact me, I can’t reach out to her. She didn’t let me say anything, and she just kept saying the same thing, ‘I am safe, I am good’, like those you see on Facebook.”
When asked if she believed the person who texted her was her daughter, Mrs. Chee said she was unsure. In the beginning, Angie told her mother that she was going to Thailand for work and would return on June 7.
“When I asked where is she working, she didn’t answer, just kept saying that she was at the Thailand border.”
“She asked me to withdraw the police report; if not, she cannot return. She said, ‘I am good, I am happy now,'” said Mrs Chee.
Mrs Chee also said that she thinks her daughter’s voice sounded nervous. “She does not know that I have gone to Thailand. She just asked to stop bothering the driver who fetched her there,” said Mrs Chee.
Putting her hands together, Mrs Chee thanked everyone who helped to find her daughter. She also mentioned that her Facebook account had been hacked thrice since June 7, 2023.
