    TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Siti Aisyah (26) was supposedly picked up by State Officials just one day after arriving at her hometown of Kampung Rancasukur, Serang District, on Tuesday. 

    “She was picked up on Wednesday night,” said Indra Mutain, Aisyah’s relative on Thursday, March 14.

    “She has yet returned home,” said Indra, who has yet heard news from her to this day.

    Despite obvious concern for her well-being, Indra said that the entire family was praying for Aisyah’s condition.
