The mother of a 17-year-old schoolgirl who went missing a year ago is angry because the suspect in the case has vanished.

Sibusiso Nkosi, 29, was arrested last year in connection with the disappearance of Khanyisile Ngcobo, but was later released.

At the time of Khanyisile's disappearance she had been awarded a bursary to further her studies after matric.

She vanished after she was allegedly kidnapped by a group of people who pushed her into a car and drove off with her. She was on her way to a bus stop when she was kidnapped.

Her mother, Mpume Ngcobo said: "It was disturbing that the suspect who was the only person who knew my daughter's whereabouts has disappeared. I am deeply hurt."

She said she had asked traditional healers for help, but she had still not found her daughter.

Ngcobo said the last time she spoke to Khanyisile was in October, when she received a call from her.

"She said she had been kept in a place she could not describe. She sounded as if she was with a group of females who were either drinking or were high on drugs," said Ngcobo.

"I could hear women laughing at me in the background. They also said I would never see my daughter again because I did not deserve her."

Attempts to get comment from police spokesman, Superintendent Muzi Mngomezulu, were unsuccessful.
