People stayed up until the early hours of the morning following her case and mobilizing help, however this revelation seems to put a new twist to the story. According to the man known as Chris Mbedu, he stated that he decided to react and follow up on the information that was shared on social media.

He claims to have responded to the call with a colleague at around 11 PM and drove to all of the locations she kept on sharing on Facebook using R800 from their own pockets ans alarted the police in Alberton as he last location suggested with the help of the police. The man then stated that they also received the help of two more night guard officers who sent R1500 from their own pocket.

After a lengthy search they decided to enlist the help of a tracking company with more resources. To the shock of the people who were in scene, the car was tracked to her home address according to this post. He then went on to share that she then drove herself to the police station which raised suspicions over the authenticity of the case.
