The affordable education loan option
Cape Town - Police and volunteers are searching for a 6-year-old boy who went missing in Beacon Valley near Mitchells Plain on Thursday.
The boy’s name is Andre Maggels.
“He was playing with his friends in front of a relative’s house in Rolbal Street, Beacon Valley. The minor is not familiar with the area as he is from Groot Brakrivier, George,” said police spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel André Traut.
The boy’s father has since travelled from George to join the search for his son. Abie Isaacs, chairman of the Mitchells Plain Community Policing Forum, said community volunteers had joined the search party and were set to scour the area throughout the morning.
There were no updates or breakthroughs by mid-morning.
At the time of his disappearance Andre was wearing cotton, grey tracksuit pants, a yellow T-shirt with black spots and was barefoot.
