Cops urged those with information to come forward to the nearest police station to aid in the investigation.
The 33-year-old employer noticed the incident after returning home from a family's friend's wedding at 7.30pm on Sunday.
Seremban District Police Chief Assistant Commissioner Nanda Maarof said the maid named Hendriyawati, 40, did not respond to any of the calls and the complainant found the kitchen door and the back gate left opened.
“His child's and wife's jewellery were missing from their bedroom drawers," he said, adding that the complainant made a police report on Monday at 11.44am.
“The complainant had filed a late report because he attempted to track the suspect through the employment agent and identifying her tracks through several numbers in the maid’s notebook,” he said in a statement today.
He said investigations found the suspect's clothes bag was still in her room and had left the house with a bag owned by the complainant’s child.
The case is being investigated under Section 381 of the Penal Code. Those with information are urged to come forward to the nearest police station to aid in the investigation.
