Petaling Jaya – Two students from the Assunta Secondary School have gone missing after booking and cancelling a Grab car ride on the evening of Sunday, Apr 14.

The girls, N. Natshatra (15) and M. Divyaa (16), went to the temple to attend a Tamil New Year ceremony.

After the prayers, Diyyaa spent some time at Natshatra’s home 10 minutes away from her house.

The Sun reported that Divyaa’s mother received a text from her daughter saying they had booked a Grab ride home, but Diyya never arrived home.

The girls were last seen at the Maxwell Tower Condo at around 11:40 PM. Natshatra seemed to have accompanied her friend as they waited for the Grab car. The girls were thought to have cancelled the booking after waiting for some time. The security guard on duty said he saw them walk away.

The parents of both girls have already filed police reports.

Grab released a statement saying that they are treating the incident “with seriousness.” The spokesperson added that Grab’s system indicated that the ride was cancelled, so the driver proceeded to the next booking.

Grab stated that they are “in touch with the family” and provided suggestions to aid in finding the missing girls such as checking CCTV footage for review.

Fortunately, police reported that the girls have been found on Apr 15. Police refused to provide details regarding the matter, as investigations are ongoing.

Rideshare users have grown apprehensive over news of criminal activity when using the services. There have been calls for additional security measures such as using QR or bar codes on front plates of cars. In March, a US student was murdered after she went into a  car she mistook for her Uber./TISG
