At the time she said people had tried to help her son but he ran away.

"He was then spotted on the street, bare foot and bare chested and that’s why they contacted me again. We left Cape Town immediately and landed in Vietnam," she said.

However, her son has not been found.

In a post on Facebook, Abrahams said she still feels the pain.

"The pain, the anguish, the fear. It's like every cell in my being remembers. The hopelessness, the helplessness, the frustration at not having any answers comes up again. I will keep your memory alive till my last breath. You were someone, you meant something to all that knows you.

"You will always be my 'shams'. Wherever you are may you be safe & if you are no more may you be in the highest of abodes our Mushi. We miss & love you unconditionally. Until we meet again... Your mumzy.." she wrote.
