Mbombela - The search for a 13-year-old girl from Ermelo, Mpumalanga, who went missing from her school last week, has now gone countrywide.

Jacolene Vermeulen has been missing since last Wednesday. According to Constable Jaco Steyn of the Ermelo police station’s unit for domestic violence, child protection and sexual offences, she was last seen at the JJ van der Merwe primary school.

A friend saw her getting into a white Isuzu bakkie with the registration number CNN 370 MP.

Police are looking for Jacolene’s stepfather, Riaan Roberts, who is in his thirties, as he could possibly assist them in the search.

Over the weekend, police extended their search up to Marloth Park near Komatipoort.

They tracked Roberts’s cellphone signal, but his phone has not been working since Saturday. They are investigating the possibility that Roberts is camping in a tent somewhere in the Lowveld.

- Anyone with information has been asked to contact Constable Steyn on 017 819 2321 or 084 408 3445.
