Search on for 2 missing E Cape children

2012-01-03 12:02
East London - Eastern Cape police are looking for two children who went missing in two separate incidents.

The dog unit and local police started looking for Mesuli Mtebhele early on Tuesday morning, Captain Jackson Manatha said.

The 10-year-old boy was kidnapped by a man in a plantation forest at Khothana village in Nqamakwe.

"We will not stop until we find him. No one has come forward so we have no leads on the identification of the man."

Mtebhele and his 11-year-old friend Athi Cekiso were herding sheep when a man approached them on Sunday afternoon.

"He emerged from the trees with a dagger and chased the boys. Cekiso outran him, but Mtebhele was caught by the man," Manatha said.

A case of kidnapping was being investigated.

Reward

Meanwhile, Motherwell police offered a R10 000 reward to anyone who could help find a 3-year-old girl. Zenixole Solomon went missing on August 28 last year from her grandmother's house.

"We still have hope that she is alive because we have not received any information that can make us doubt that she is not alive," Warrant Officer Dumile Gwavu said.

She was last seen playing in front of her house.

No eyewitnesses had come forward to date, Gwavu said.
