SOMEBODY out there has the KELY support group's hotline in their handbag or trouser pocket. The 24-hour emergency number for teenagers in distress is no longer in the hands of KELY director Chris Simpson - and calls to the crisis line are going unanswered. Simpson had the $15,000 mobile telephone in his briefcase when he took the MTR from Tsim Sha Tsui to Sha Tin on Tuesday night - but when he got off the train, it had disappeared. Miranda Sears of KELY said: ''We don't know if he lost it, or if someone picked it up, or what has happened to it.'' KELY, which stands for Kids Everywhere Like You, is named after a young recovering alcoholic and drug addict and provides counselling talks, information and a call-out service. It is an independent body funded by donations, and is in the middle of appealing for $1.5 million a year to provide a Chinese-language counselling service. ''We can not afford to replace the phone,'' Ms Sears said. The mobile crisis line number is 903 29096. When police first tried to call it, answered. ''Now, nobody is answering,'' Ms Sears said. ''I'm sure if they knew who owned the phone, they'd be distressed,'' Ms Sears said. KELY is appealing for anyone with a link to the missing phone to call the group's regular daytime number - 521 6890. ''It would cost a lot to change this mobile phone number,'' added Ms Sears. ''Apart from the cost of the phone, there are other factors like publicising the new number, changing all our cards, all the posters.''
