Schoolgirl, 12, left home to walk to shop - and vanished
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.
