Cape Town - A search party will soon be taking to the streets of Hangberg, Hout Bay after a 7-year-old boy was reported missing on Tuesday.

According to missing children's organisation the Pink Ladies, Byron Baron left his grandmother’s house to visit his other grandmother, who also lives in the area, at about 16:00. He never arrived at her home.

He was last spotted by locals in the area at around 20:00 and has not been seen since.

He was wearing a black and yellow hooded top, maroon pants, a blue T-shirt and grey and purple Vans takkies.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts can contact Warrant Officer Tanya Lesch on 021 791 8660 or 082 302 8370.

Baron’s disappearance comes just over two weeks after little Shasha Lee November from Hanover Park was reported missing.

The six-year-old girl, affectionately known as Meisie, was last seen on Sunday, May 3 playing mere metres from her Groenel Walk home.

A massive search led by residents ensued. She has not yet been found, however.

Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille is offering a R25 000 reward for anyone with information on Shasha’s whereabouts.
