Cape Town - Remain hopeful. That’s the advice a local organisation has given to parents of children who have gone missing in recent years.
Dessie Rechner of The Pink Ladies Organisation, which assists police in tracking missing children and adults, said children go missing throughout the year “in waves” with a large number going missing before school holidays.
“This is when you see a lot of runaways. Generally, you have children missing throughout the year but (a lot) disappear around exams and go running around.”
She said their organisation works closely with police and they currently have a 91 percent success rate.
Rechner said she never forgets her cases and has a look back at pictures of children that have not been found for years.
