The body of a three-year-old child who went missing with two others was found in a car in Kubjana village near Relela, Limpopo.

The body was discovered yesterday evening after the car owner called the police, according to Limpopo police Lieutenant Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe.

“The three had locked themselves in the car while playing for hours and they were found by the owner when he got back from work.”

Ngoepe said the owner noticed that the car lights were on and he called the police.

Two of the children were unharmed.

“We are not sure what killed the other one. The postmortem will determine the cause of death.”

An inquest case was opened and police were investigating.
