A R10,000 reward has been offered for information that could help in the search for a missing 13-year-old girl, miss René Roman who disappeared last Friday after leaving her Lavender Hill home.
The Steenberg community policing forum’s Lucinda Evans has called on people to come forward with information.
“We are posting a R10,000 reward for information leading to us finding René. We want accurate information where we can just get into a car and fetch the child,” the police reported.
René Roman was last seen leaving her Lavender Hill home to go to a nearby shop last Friday. Her mother told the police and media that her daughter was taken by someone but no further details are available.
The CPF’s Lucinda Evans says: “We are still very hopeful like I told the people today, we are looking for Rene and not a body. The community is supporting her parents.”
The reported case of the missing René Roman came after the case of a Kraaifontein toddler who was announced missing after he was last seen at a park in the Wallacedene community.
The Pink Ladies’ Dessie Rechner is appealing for anyone with information to contact her or the police.
“He is a little male, small built, dark eyes, dark hair and average weight and height. If you see him or have any information please contact the local SAPS Constable Oshela 0219805516 or 0798939857.”
Similar to these is the report of a 28-year-old Paarl woman, Nicola Pienaar, who was declared missing in January. Pienaar’s parents raised an alarm of their missing daughter after she was reportedly seen with her partner leaving Paarl.
Nicola Pienaar’s partner was later taken into custody but he defended himself saying he left her in Oudtshoorn two days after they left Paarl after they had an argument. The 28-year-old woman has not been seen since.
The SA police has however promised to keep up with their search for the missing persons but raised concern over the rising cases of missing individuals in the country.
