Johannesburg - Mitchells Plain police want to question a man called Robert Sylvester who they believe can help with their investigation into the disappearance of 4-year old Shaskia Michaels from Tafelsig, Western Cape police spokesman Lt-Col Andre Traut said on Sunday.
“We are appealing to the community for information about his whereabouts. His last known address is in Freedom Park, Tafelsig.”
Anyone with information may contact Warrant officer Charles Julies or Mitchells Plain police on 021-370 1600 or Crime Stop on 08600 10 111.
Meanwhile, a reward of R50,000 was offered for an arrest in connection with the disappearance of Michaels, and Kauthar Bobbs, by Cape Town mayor Patricia de Lille.
“As a parent, I can only imagine what Shaskia's family is going through. I will continue to do everything I can to assist. I hope that the reward money will lead to the arrest and prosecution of the perpetrators,” said De Lille in a statement.
Michaels disappeared on Thursday morning in Mitchell's Plain and was last seen at her grandmother's house.
Kauthar Bobbs disappeared also in Mitchells Plain last October.
De Lille pledged the reward after joining the morning's search efforts for Michaels, which included police, the Mitchell's plain community police forum, disaster management volunteers and the child's family.
She said the city would this week dispatch disaster management volunteers and contracted workers under the city's Extended Public Works Programme to the area to continue with the search.
Anyone with information on their whereabouts can also contact the police's Crime Line on 10111 or 08600-10111 or the city's Disaster Operations Centre on 080-911-4357. - Sapa
