The search for the missing Sri Lankan maid at Bukit Antarabangsa, Kuala Lumpur has been called off. The stop order was given at 2pm yesterday after sonar equipment and a dog unit scanning a five-metre radius area around the house came up with nothing.
Lourdes Mary is the maid to Dr N. Yogeswari who died in the tragedy.
Selangor police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar told a press conference that the chance of finding the body without excavating the entire area was slim.
He said it was likely the woman was dead.
DCP Khalid said a small team would be stationed at the site to assist affected residents retrieve valuables and important documents from their homes.
