KUALA LUMPUR - The Malaysian, who was reported 'missing' after the SEA Games football final between Indonesia and Malaysia in Jakarta, Indonesia was bemused at the attention.
Music promoter, Ahmad Firdhaus Arham, 26, said he was in Jakarta to do promotion for Malaysian punk rock band Bunkface.
Malaysian Embassy in Indonesia initiated a search for Ahmad Firdhaus after receiving a wallet containing his personal document and cash on Monday.
The search sparked a rumour online that he was missing after watching the football final match between Indonesia and Malaysia at Gelora Bung Karno, Senayan.
"I was in Jakarta throughout my stay there to do promotion for Bunkface," said Ahmad Firdhaus during a telephone interview with New Straits Times on Wednesday night.
He said he arrived in Jakarta on Friday along with 16 entertainment journalists for the event and stayed at Raston Rasuna apartment in Kuningan.
Ahmad Firdhaus said his wallet was stolen at a shopping complex, but luckily he still had his passport with him.
"I did not realise that my missing wallet would spark a search for me," he said.
Ahmad Firdhaus who was from Ampangan, Negri Sembilan returned home on Wednesday and only realised that people were looking for him after his mother told him about it.
"She saw it on the news on television and told me about it. That was when the phone started ringing. The police also came to the house to look for me.
"I am safe. It was just a misunderstanding and I have cleared it with authorities," he said.
