A poster of abducted boy Nayati Shamelin Moodliar is on display on a street of Kuala Lumpur.

 The family of a 12-year-old Dutch boy seized five days ago in Kuala Lumpur appealed Wednesday for any information that could help locate their missing son.

A Malaysian businessman and a Malaysia-based news portal have offered a combined reward of 60 000 ringgit (20 000 dollars) for information that could lead to the rescue of Nayati Shamelin Moodliar.

Moodliar was apparently seized by two men on Friday while walking to Mont' Kiara International School, near his home in Kuala Lumpur. He was then dragged to a waiting a black car, police said.

“We do not have any updates on Nayati's whereabouts,” the boy's family posted late Wednesday on a Facebook account set up especially.

“Kindly do continue to send all information/suggestions to our email.”

The victim's parents are originally from South Africa, but now hold Dutch citizenship.

The police have not provided any recent updates on their investigation.

More than 20 000 people have expressed their support to the Moodliar family through the Facebook account.- Sapa-dpa
