Boy missing for a month found at mall

By Jauhara Khan

A Pinetown, KwaZulu-Natal boy, Michael Verster, has been found in Vereeniging after he was reported missing almost a month ago.

The ginger-haired, hazel-eyed pupil was taken from The Browns School in Pinetown on the morning of April 28.

He had climbed into another car after being dropped off at school that morning, his mother Monique Verster said.

A relieved Verster said on Sunday that her son had been found at a Vereeniging shopping centre on Friday by a couple who took him to a nearby police station, and "he was taken to a place of safety".

She had no details on where he had been since going missing.
