A few days after the body of Tazne van Wyk (8) was found in a stormwater drain on the N1 outside Worcester, another young girl in the Western Cape disappeared without a trace.
The news of Nabeelah Begg, 16, disappeared sent fears and shock waves through the community of Bonteheuwel.
Begg was last seen alive on February 18 while walking to school, but she never showed up at school.
She was dressed in her school clothes, gray trousers and a white shirt.
Begg has long brown hair and green eyes. She is described as someone who is finely built, and she is 1.4 m tall.
According to a family member, the family is furious, especially considering all the events surrounding Tazne.
The family member further says this is the first time Begg has just disappeared from home without any explanation and has been away for such a long period of time.
“I do not want to ride the car in front of the horses, but it seems that a clue that came in late last night (Friday night) may lead to a positive outcome,” said the family member.
“We gave the information to the detective this morning (Saturday morning), who undertook to follow it up and investigate.”
Tazne had been missing since February 7. Moyhdine Panganker, 54, is charged with her murder and kidnapping.
