Police appeal for information on missing persons

The Police in Lebowakgomo outside Polokwane have launched a search operation for two missing persons, 16-year-old teenager Keletso Mphahlele from Lenting village in the Ga-Mphahlele area and 75-year-old elderly man from Staanplaas village in the Ga-Chuene area.

It is alleged that the 16-year-old left her home on Monday 10 September 2018. She allegedly travelled together with her mother in a bus, going to school and her mother going to work. When the mother got home in the afternoon, her daughter was nowhere to be found. She was reportedly wearing school uniform, blue skirt, white shirt and a blue pull over.

In another incident, a 75-year-old man, Frank Rakgoroane, residing at Staanplaas Ga-Chuene also disappeared. It is alleged that the elderly man left home on Tuesday 11 September 2018 at about 14:00. He did not inform anyone where he was going.

The family tried to locate him, particularly at a usual place Sedimothole Seleteng where he regularly visit with no success. He was last seen by his daughter wearing a black cowboy hat, maroon jacket and black long trouser with light brown tekkies.

An attempt by the police and family to look for the two at relatives and friends did not yield any positive results.
