As the police crack down on Bersih and those who support them, the whereabouts of red-shirts leader Jamal Md Yunos remains unknown.
The Sungai Besar Umno chief appeared to be keeping a low profile, and did not turn up for a press conference scheduled this evening at Masjid Negara in Kuala Lumpur.
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.
One of Jamal's lieutenants Razali Zakaria, when met at the mosque this evening, said he did not know where the red-shirts leader was.
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.
Jamal was supposed to be present at Masjid Negara to announce that the red-shirts would be occupying the area starting today.
Instead the announcement was made by Razali.
"We will be here until tomorrow. More will come here in batches and continue to gather here until tomorrow,” he told reporters.
Masjid Negara is one of two main locations where Bersih is gathering. The other main gathering point for Bersih is in Bangsar.- Mkini
