South Africa has a high rate of missing children, with many cases going unsolved. Child trafficking and abduction for illegal adoption or forced labour also contribute to the problem. Law enforcement and government agencies have been criticized for their handling of missing child cases, with some families accusing them of not doing enough to find their missing children.
Police in Bloemhof is requesting the community's assistance in locating 5-year-old Kamogelo Gaobuse, from Reatlegile, outside Bloemhof who is missing. He was last seen by his Mother, when she dropped him off at school on Thursday, 12 January 2023.
Strengthening law enforcement and government agencies in Mzansi can include increasing resources and training for police officers and social workers to improve their ability to handle missing child cases. They must do more to find these missing children as time is important in every missing person's case.
The lack of a centralized database for missing children in South Africa could make it difficult for authorities to track and locate missing kids. Please if you have any info about the missing boy, kindly contact the nearest police station as his mother is worried about him.
Establishing a centralized database that includes information on missing children, such as fingerprints, DNA, and photographs would make it easier for authorities to track and locate missing kids.
Additionally, a collaboration between government and non-government organizations: NGOs and government agencies can work together to provide support services to families of missing children, such as counselling and assistance with the search and investigation process.
