An overnight multidisciplinary search for two boys, who apparently went missing while looking for their dog in bushes in Reservoir Hills, Durban, revealed the pair may have not been missing at all.

IPSS Medical Rescue's Paul Herbst told TimesLIVE on Friday the boys were found at a supermarket.

“We were called out last night with the Umhlali K9 unit, police search and rescue and Metro search and rescue to search for two boys who went missing at 4pm while looking for their dog.

“Multiple resources, a rescue team of about 15 people and four dogs were used to search from midnight until 9am this morning, only to find out the boys were fooling around at the Checkers store in the Reservoir Hills area,” he said.

The boys are believed to be around 13 years old.
