A NEWCASTLE mother and son who were last seen by a relative more than two weeks ago are still missing.

Police spokesperson Joey Jeevan said Marie Nonhlanhla Shabangu (45) and her son, Nhlonipho David Shabangu (14), have not been seen since January 11 when they boarded a taxi bound for Pietermaritzburg.

Marie is described as chubby, dark in complexion and about 1,8 m tall, with short black hair.

“Nhlonipho is a well-built boy who is dark in complexion, 1,5 m tall, with very short black hair. He also has a two-centimetre scar on his forehead and was wearing a red wristwatch,” said Jeevan.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to to call Detective Warrant Officer Morgan Munsami at 033 845 7724 or 084 400 9945.
