Missing: no trace of boy gone for three weeks

2008-08-13 00:00

Police have not been able to find any trace of three-year-old Sanele Mbanjwa (3), now missing for over three weeks.

Sanele disappeared from his home on an Otto’s Bluff farm on July 24.

Inspector Jack Haskins of the Search and Rescue Unit told The Witness yesterday that he made another extensive search of the farm on Friday, this time by helicopter. “We did an aerial search for over an hour-and-a-half, flying low, but came up with absolutely nothing.” Haskins said the downdraft parted tree branches and they could see the ground in great detail.

He expressed fears that Sanele may have been abducted. “We really don’t know what’s happened to him.”

He said Crammond police are continuing with their investigation.
