The Western Cape has the highest rate of children who registered missing in all of South Africa, says Missing Children South Africa. This is quite a concern.
In line with International day for missing children, celebrated on Monday, Judy Botes from Missing Children SA has urged parents to report their children missing to the South Africa Police Service immediately.
“It’s very important not to wait 24 hours – like they say. You should report your child missing immediately. The first 72 hours are the most crucial hours for us to find a child,” said Botes.
Botes says that the organisation will do all things possible to help to find the missing child, but added that certain procedures must be followed.
“Get a case number from the South African Police Services and with a case number, contact Missing Children South Africa,” she said.
