IOL reported the mom talked about the events leading up to her daughter's disappearance. She said her son, daughter and cousin were playing on a dirt road near her aunt's home.

She said she could see them where they were playing and she saw a couple of horsing coming so she called the children in.

However, only her son and their cousin returned home, her daughter was no where to be found.

“I went to our home, thinking that maybe she could have headed there but she didn’t. I went back to my aunt’s and we got neighbours out looking but when we still couldn’t find her by 9pm, I phoned the police who told me to come to the station in the morning.”
