Vanessa Mubaiwa,18, and Kimberley Mubaiwa, 21 went missing on May 27.

According to their father Douglas Mubaiwa, they were given a tip-off about the girls' whereabouts while he had been conducting a Facebook Live interview with an online blogger.

The interview was part of a mission to raise awareness around the search for the girls.

Mubaiwa said: "We were busy with the interview and again tried to create a platform for fund-raising to appoint a private investigator to help with the search. We got a tip-off while doing the live broadcast and the person sent us the pictures of my daughters, showing they are in Johannesburg.

"Initial information we have is that they had taken the bus to Joburg and were visiting friends. We don't know why they did this and why they didn't communicate, but our priority now is to bring them back to Cape Town safely.

"My wife went there and will return with them by Friday," said Mubaiwa.
