TSHILWAVHUSIKU : The South African Police Service in  Tshilwavhusiku have launched a massive search operation of a 75-year-old woman, Mamafa Francinah Mosehla who went missing on Monday, 21 June 2021.

The elderly woman is mentally disabled and she reportedly went missing in the morning at about 08:00 while collecting firewood at the bushes with her elder sister in Ravele Village.

Her sister alleges that when they were returning back home, the victim was walking behind her when she decided to fasten her shoe laces.

Subsequently, when she checked on her, the elderly woman was nowhere to be found. A few minutes later, she got a call that the victim is already at home.

Unfortunately, when she arrived at home, her neighbour told her that the victim went to the dumping site. A search operation was conducted by the Police and members of the community members at the surrounding bushes and relatives but were not successful.

During her disappearance she was last seen wearing a red jersey, blue skirt and floral blouse.

Anyone with information that can assist to find the elderly woman should contact Lieutenant Colonel Maphefo Machaba on 0824517163 or Sergeant Manngo on 0794284359 or crime stop number 0860010111 or nearest police station or MySAPSApp.
