The mother of a missing nine-year-old girl wept yesterday as she begged for information which would bring her daughter home safely. 'I'm worried I mightn't see her again or that she won't be found alive,' said Au Yeung Yau-choi, 47. 'Whoever's taken my daughter, please free her and let her come home.' About 50 police questioned people at recreation areas near the family's Tai Kok Tsui home, covering Thistle, Ferry and Shamchun streets where missing Leung Wan-wah had played. Ms Au Yeung, a mother of six, fears her daughter could have been abducted or met with an accident. Wan-wah's 17-year-old sister, Yim-wah, went to Tsuen Wan yesterday after a neighbour said a similar-looking girl had been seen there two days ago. Mongkok acting Superintendent Lo Kai-wah said it was possible Wan-wah had run away from home. 'We are now looking at any possible clues,' Mr Lo said. Wan-wah has been missing since Friday. The previous day, father Leung Cho-wan, 47, told her she would receive a beating if she was home late on Friday night. 'Her father didn't mean it. He just hoped she would stay at home,' the mother said. The girl had spent much of the summer holidays playing with her classmates in nearby gardens. She left the family's Ferry Street flat about 9 am on Friday and went to visit a 27-year-old man in nearby Shamchun Street, leaving his home about 10.30 am. 'The girl borrowed $20 from the former caretaker, who she had met in the garden recently. She told him she was going to see a classmate,' said Senior Inspector Tso Kwok-kuen. But she never arrived, and her parents reported her missing at 11 pm. 'She always went out during the holidays, but she came home for dinner,' Ms Au Yeung said. Wan-wah is about 1.2 metres tall, slim and walks with a slight limp. She has short hair.
