The red-shirts have occupied Masjid Negara, one of the gathering point of the Bersih 5 rally.
However, Sungai Besar Umno chief Jamal Md Yunos, who leads the red-shirts, is no where to be seen.
Instead, it was Jamal's lieutenant Razali Zakaria who took charge at Masjid Negara.
"We will be here until tomorrow. More will come here in batches and continue to gather here until tomorrow,” he told reporters.
Jamal was supposed to be present at Masjid Negara to announce that the red-shirts would be occupying the area starting today.
Razali said he and other red-shirts leaders did not know Jamal's whereabouts.
Another individual close to Jamal also said he didn't know of his whereabouts as speculation intensified that he too had been arrested.
However, this could not be confirmed with the police.
"I don't know, I wasn't able to contact him. None of us know where he is. When I last contacted him he said he was on the way (to the national mosque)."But now when I call him, he is unavailable. We don't know where he is," his close aide told Malaysiakini on condition of anonymity.
Other red-shirts leaders, however, said Jamal may be keeping a low profile amid mass arrests by the police ahead of the Bersih 5 and red-shirts rallies tomorrow.
Malaysiakini's repeated attempts to contact him have been unsuccessful.
However, a press invite sent out later this evening stated that Jamal would be at the national mosque at 10pm. -Mkini
