Missing: Little girl disappears

2008-10-12 00:00

Police have appealed to the public to be on the look-out for missing eight-year-old Sethabile Ngcobo, who disappeared from her school in Greyling Street on Friday.

Inspector Clive van Wyk said the family of the little girl are distraught.

Sethabile is one of several children who travel to school in a lift club from her home in Esigodini, Edendale, to the Alston Primary School in the city.

“On Friday, she was dropped off at school as usual, but when the school closed at 12.35 pm, she did not turn up. Her transport waited for her in vain and when there was no sign of her, she was reported missing to the police,” said Van Wyk.

He said other children reported having seen Sethabile at school that day. His search for the little girl has taken him as far afield as Durban, but by late yesterday afternoon there was still no sign of her.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Van Wyk at 073 652 6986.
