The family and school fraternity of a 12-year-old girl who is missing in Robertson, Western Cape, are praying for her safe return while police try to trace her.

Police spokesperson Lt-Col Andrè Traut said Shariefa Adams was last seen leaving her home to go to a local shop on Friday.

Adams, who is a pupil at Dagbreek Primary School, was reported missing by her grandmother on Monday.

At the time of her disappearance, Adams was wearing a nightgown with hearts on it.

"Let's pray that God would keep this little girl safe," her school said in a Facebook post.

Dagbreek Primary School's principal Neville Padiachy shared on a comment thread that he had visited the family on Tuesday night to offer comfort.
