This claim comes after police apparently made them wait for more than an hour when they called them as a lead was followed up at Napier Court, Clarke Estate.
Emotionally exhausted, Courtney’s mother, Juanita Peters, said: “I’m very unhappy with the way police are handling this matter, because every time they would come to me looking for leads."
“Aren’t they the ones who are supposed to bring me information (regarding the case)? They’re not doing much, in my opinion. My child has been missing for seven days and they are just not getting anywhere."
“I don’t even know if I should still co-operate with them, because I seem to be getting assistance from everyone but the police.”
She said even with the information regarding the new lead, she heard it from other people.
“Roegshanda Pascoe and the rest of the neighbourhood watch arrived here on Wednesday and immediately got leads, but the police say they’ve not made any headway.”
Courtney Peters disappeared from her Elsies River home. She was last seen at about 8am in Pluto Street.
