A frantic mother was spotted desperately searching for her children at the void deck of Block 827 Woodlands Street 81 around 2pm yesterday. The mother was seen stopping passers-by to inquire whether they had seen her two children.
When one such passer-by probed further, the agitated parent apparently revealed to him that she suspects that her domestic helper has abducted her children, possibly after she had confiscated the helper’s mobile phone.
The police were subsequently called and two plainclothes policemen and 4 uniformed officers responded.
In a twist of events, a man – believed to be the children’s father – brought the children back home safely and soundly just two hours later, at 4pm.
The mother then reportedly refused to comment further on the matter, only adding that she was happy that her children have returned home safely.
