CAPE TOWN - The SAPS in the Western Cape noted various communication pertaining to the search for missing six-year-old Joslin Smith. Some of the communication with merit, other a combination of misinformation, half-truths and misleading information.

It is on this basis that we wish to reiterate our commitment to the search and investigation into missing six-year-old Joslin.

Due to the time that has passed since she was reported missing, our search and investigations have taken and assumed different approaches. At times led by information at our disposal, we have utilised specialised capabilities. Our investigators supported by members from visible policing and specialised units with interventions from other law enforcement agencies as well as scores of community members have been hard at work since she was reported missing.

We welcome support form civilians with regard to the search, but it must be properly coordinated and within the perimeters of the law. As the lead agency in investigations, mandated by law our dedicated investigators to the case are applying the required principles of investigations as their work unfolds with a view to taking the matter to court when required.

Every endeavour is made to find the missing girl.
