. Thanarajah (pic) the employer of the Sri Lankan maid missing since the Bukit Antarabangsa landslide on Dec 6, has been providing updates to her husband and three children, who are located at a mountain village 110km from Colombo.
“I don’t want to be the person who tells them that she is not alive until the police tell me that first,” Thanarajah said.
He said that the maid’s family found it difficult to accept that the police had stopped the search as they believed that they had the resources to continue.
Thanarajah said the maid’s family wanted the search to continue.
Thanarajah believes that the maid is still trapped within the rubble of the landslide.
According to him, the police may have been looking in the wrong place even after his brother and neighbours pointed out the possible location.
Thanarajah said that he hoped the police would widen the search area and start looking a little further from where his original house was located.
Thanarajah also claimed that his bags and jewellery box were ransacked and his children’s clothes hung at the gutter after he came back from his wife’s funeral.
