    12-year-old girl goes missing for the sixth time

    A 12-year-old girl from Tembisa, east of Johannesburg has gone missing more than five times.

    Voice Of Tembisa FM reports that the girl, Jabulile Tshabalala from Etshonalanga Section of Tembisa has gone AWOL on her parents again.

    The previous time she went missing was on 27 April this year and was located weeks later at a local tavern.

    This time, the Voice of Tembisa FM reported that it was the sixth time reporting on Jabulile who again deserted her home and school.

    She is currently nowhere to be found.

    The mother, Fikile Tshabala, who claimed intervention by social workers yielded no results, is appealing for two things – help with Jabulile’s safe return and assistance for her to be placed in an unfamiliar place of safety.


    Anyone who might have information on the whereabouts of the 12-year-old girl or can assist in finding her place of safety to contact the mother Fikile Tshabalala on 065 643 1204.

    Police advice to follow when you report a missing person at your nearest police station:

    • Produce a recent photograph of the missing person, if possible.
    • Give a complete description of the missing person’s last whereabouts, clothes that they were wearing, as well as any information that can assist the investigating officer.
    • Complete and sign a SAPS 55(A) form. This form safeguards the SAPS from hoax reports and indemnifies the SAPS to distribute the photograph and information of the missing person.
    • Obtain the investigating officer’s contact details, and send any additional information that might become available.
    • If a missing person is found or returns voluntarily, inform the investigating officer immediately. A SAPS 92 form must be completed to inform the Bureau of Missing Persons that the missing person’s report can be removed from the circulation system.
