The distraught mother of a mentally challenged Delft man who has been found in eSwatini after disappearing six years ago, has been pleading to the public to help her get her son back home.

It was not known how he’d got to the country formerly known as Swaziland. Denzil, who has no documents allowing him to be in that country, was able to supply authorities with his mother's address.
