KLANG (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - The two runaway teenage sisters have returned home after going missing for a week.

Tee Hui Fang, 16, and her sister Hui Yee, 15, reunited with their parents on Monday night after a mediation session by social activist Mr Peter Tan.

The two girls, who put up at a house belonging to a friend's sister in Bandar Sunway, were initially reluctant to return home as they feared their disciplinarian father.

Hui Fang, in particular, was afraid of her father, whom she described as controlling and often scolding her.
