Update from Stephen Warde’s Family

Update from Stephen Warde’s Family:– Stephen is still missing as from Jan 28th. We have received some leads from the public and we would like to appeal for anyone who may have any information, including potential sightings of Stephen, to contact the police in Kuala Lumpur (+60 3 2600 2222 or +60 3 2697 7099) as soon as possible. The last communication we received from Stephen was on January 1st and the last confirmed sighting of him in Kuala Lumpur was on December 29th. The police believe that he may still be in Kuala Lumpur. Though we don’t currently have strong leads on his whereabouts, we still have hope. We appreciate the messages of support that we have received over recent days and weeks. Stephen is 31 years of age, 5’11”, dark brown hair, brown eyes, medium to large build. He was last seen wearing a blue/purple t-shirt, khaki shorts and black sneakers. Thank you. Mary Morrissey (Stephen’s mother).
