Johannesburg - Gauteng police were on Sunday trying to identify the partially burnt body of a child found in a mine dump in Reiger Park.
“We are still busy with the process of identifying the body,” said Colonial Noxolo Kweza.
It was not known yet if it was the body of Cuburne Lavone van Wyk, who disappeared on August 6 while playing outside with siblings.
She said the process was likely to be completed sometime during the week.
The body was found on Saturday by a passerby who informed the police.
At the time, Kweza said police were looking for 25-year-old Katleho Phoku known as “Chicken” who they think could help with the investigation into the boy's disappearance.
