During the weekend, a man was claimed to have gone missing after he went to Penang to meet a customer who was interested in buying his iPhone. He even video-called his fiancé to ask for help before his phone died.

Days later, the man, Haikal made it home safely and according to her aunt, he was found and rescued by a lorry driver.

Just today (October 9), PDRM has responded to the matter and shared what really happened behind Haikal’s “disappearance.”
