Police will seek the assistance of their counterparts in the region to track down the two directors of tour and travel firm, Excellence Holidays Sdn Bhd, which went bust recently.
City Commercial Crime chief Asst Comm Mohd Aris Ramli said police were in the midst of verifying with their counterparts whether the directors had left the country.
The directors identified as Chan Kean Mun and his ex-wife Chong Suk Yen were being investigated under Section 420 of the Penal Code for cheating.
"We are now checking whether they have gone out (of the country) or not," he said when contacted here earlier today.
The two who are believed to be on the run, are also believed to have fled the country with at least RM500,000 which were proceeds from the sales of tickets and travel packages during the Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (Matta) fair in March.
Chan is believed to be in hiding in China with his girlfriend, while the whereabouts of Chong have yet to be established.
Scores of people lost the money that they had paid in advance for tour packages to locations like Europe, China and Hong Kong.
