The body of six-year-old Mikayla Rossouw who went missing from her home in Swellendam in the Western Cape, two weeks ago has been found dead.

Police discovered her body in a box a few houses from where she lived.

“Police found Mikayla’s body at 2-o-clock on Saturday afternoon. It is not yet known what caused her death”, says police spokesperson Billy Jones.

“We are investigating a case of murder as the crime scene is being processed by a forensic team”, says Jones.

A 24-year-old man was taken in for questioning and a case of murder has been opened.
Meanwhile on Friday a couple was arrested after they allegedly demanded money from police in exchange to help find the little girl.

“We don’t believe that the two were involved in Mikayla’s disappearance, but follow-up investigations will continue”, says Jones.

He added that the couple faces charges of fraud and attempted extortion. “They will appear in the Swellendam Magistrate's Court on Monday”, says Jones
