Police in Mpumalanga have appealed to the public to assist in locating missing six-year-old Bontle Zethu Ditebogo Mashiyane.

The six-year-old, from Mganduzweni in Masoyi near White River, was last seen on Saturday, 30 April 2022.

According to the police report, the girl was playing with other children at home on the said day.

“Later it was discovered that she disappeared without a trace. Her family then grew concerned after failed attempts to find her and they reported the matter to the police at Masoyi on the same Saturday. She was reported as missing,’ said police spokesperson Colonel Donald Mdluli.

Mdluli said that the highly prioritized case is being handled by a specialized unit of the Family Violence, Child Protection, and Sexual Offences Unit (FCS) in Pienaar as they are experts in probing such matters due to the skills and resources that they possess.

Police said on the day Bontle went missing, she was wearing a pink T-Shirt as well as pink tracksuit trousers without shoes on her feet.

Furthermore, the public is requested to alert police of Collen Hlongwane’s whereabouts.

Anyone with information that can assist in this probe can contact Detective Sergeant Pretty Nsimba at 072 103 4717 / 083 442 3403 or the Standby number for FCS at Pienaar.
