Kualar Lumpur – The kidnapping of 12-year-old Nayati Moodliar has drawn the attention of Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak. The boy, with dual South African and Dutch nationality, was snatched outside his school near Kualar Lumpur on Friday.

Najib used Twitter to make his plea, saying: "I appeal as a father for Nayati not to be harmed in any way."

He also tweeted he had instructed police chief Ismail Omar to investigate the incident.

Local police chief Wan Abdul Bari said police were taking the incident very seriously.

"I can confirm we have received a report [of the kidnapping]. Investigations [are] still on. We view such incidents very seriously," he said.

Nayati Moodliar was walking to his Mont Kiara International School located in a posh suburb near the capital Kuala Lumpur when he was kidnapped by two men who bundled him into a car on Friday.

On Monday the Moodlier family posted on Facebook that Nayati’s whereabouts were still unknown.

"We have received a lot of very good suggestions and advice from everyone who e-mailed/PM us. We are truly grateful and thankful.

"As for offerings of their well wishes and prayers, we also welcome them and we feel truly blessed and touched by them."

The family appealed to the public for information saying anyone with information or suggestions should send e-mail them at findnayati@gmail.com.
