Johannesburg - A partially burnt body of a child was found in a mine dump in Reiger Park on Saturday, Gauteng police said.

“The body was found by a passer-by who then phoned the police. Police are now in the process of identifying the body and the cause of the death,” said Colonial Noxolo Kweza.

She said police were still looking for a 25-year-old man who could help with the investigation into the disappearance of Cuburne Lavone van Wyk.

The little boy disappeared on August 6, 2014 while playing with siblings outside.

He was last seen wearing a blue track suit with yellow and red stripes.
