POLICE SEEK HELP ON MISSING PERSONS CASES Police are appealing for information on a missing girl and a missing man. Lau Yee-man, 17, failed to return to her Causeway Bay home after leaving on the morning of September 24. She is 1.6 metres tall, is of medium build and weighs 48kg. She has a round face and long black hair. Yu Lap-mun, 57, left a hostel in Pak Fung House, Choi Wan Estate, on the morning of August 29 and has not returned. He is 1.73 metres tall and of medium build. He was wearing a blue-and-white polo T-shirt. SPIDER-MAID A 27-year-old Indonesian maid shouted for help from a first-floor canopy after she climbed six floors down the outside of a building in Ha Fe Chuen. Police said she climbed out of a seventh-floor unit after a dispute with her 35-year-old male boss over her holidays. She called for help when she could not find a way to the ground floor from the canopy. SHOOTING INQUIRY Police chief Dick Lee Ming-kwa said the force was investigating an accident in which a policewoman shot herself in the right thigh during a shooting drill at the Ma Tso Lung firing range near Lok Ma Chau on Saturday. Chow Nga-lai, 29, was in stable condition in Prince of Wales Hospital last night. SON THREATENS SUICIDE A 22-year-old man threatened to jump from his 38th-floor flat in Tseung Kwan O after his mother refused to give him the $24,000 he asked her for, doubting he would really use it to pay school fees.
