Family looking for missing 12-year-old boy last seen near Admiralty Primary School

A woman is appealing for information about the whereabouts of her missing nephew, whose family last saw him near Admiralty Primary School on Sunday (Dec 4).

Julizah Buang had posted an appeal on Facebook to find 12-year-old El Zafran.

He was last seen wearing a black shirt with three-quarter pants and carrying a red bag.

According to his sister, in a phone interview with Stomp, El Zafran was not carrying a phone.

Julizah said that she had grounded the boy because of his frequent late nights out.

El Zafran's sister said that this was the first time he left the house and that the family is very worried for him.

A police report has been filed.

The boy is currently studying at East Coast Primary School.
