KOTA KINABALU (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - As a massive search continues for missing toddler Low Min You, the father of the three-year-old boy may find himself in legal trouble.

Police are looking into the possibility of charging Mr Low Yee Sheng, 31, with negligence, Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Hamza Taib said.

He said state CID chief Senior Asst Comm Omar Mammah was leading the probe on whether Mr Low, a CCTV installer, should be charged in court.

“He had left the child in the vehicle with the engine running. So, we have to ascertain whether there are elements of negligence involved here,” Mr Hamza added.
