A Hengyi Industries Sdn Bhd staff, a Chinese national, was reported missing on December 29 after he failed to return from going out of the Pulau Muara Besar boundary the same day for a short break from his duty, the company stated in a statement yesterday.

Hengyi initiated search operations and notified government agencies including the Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF) and the missing person’s family, the company added.
