THE GALESHEWE SAPS Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences (FCS) unit has requested the public’s assistance in locating a missing teenager, Didimalang Moacwi, 16.

Didimalang was last seen on Sunday morning, at around 9am.

Police spokesperson Captain Olebogeng Tawana said that Didimalang reportedly left her home in Peace Street, Kagisho, following an argument with her mother.

“She was last seen dressed in black Adidas tracksuit pants with white stripes, a white Adidas tracksuit top and pink sandals,” said Tawana.

He added that she was reportedly last seen in the vicinity of Bloemanda phase 2.

The mother of the missing teen, Vanessa Moacwi, said the family has no idea where she could have gone and where to even start looking for her.

Vanessa explained that her daughter “has a tendency of disappearing” and then coming back the next day, without ever revealing where she went.

“She always disappears without saying a word. I have tried to encourage her to invite her friends or boyfriend, if she has one, so we can be familiar with her lifestyle, but she doesn’t seem interested,” said the mother.

Didimalang attends a boarding school in the North West Province and returned home to Galeshewe a week ago after finishing her Grade 11 exams.

Vanessa said there had been an “exchange of words” with her daughter, regarding her behaviour, when she saw her last.

She added that she had previously sought the help of social workers to try and intervene in her daughter’s behaviour.

Anyone with information that could assist in reuniting Didimalang with her family is urged to contact the investigation officer, Lieutenant-Colonel Marli Holtzhauzen, on 082 4950 618.

The public can alternatively contact Crime Stop at 08600 10111.
