A family in Kiserian, Kajiado County is appealing for help in tracing their two daughters who went missing from their home in Kahuho area on November 1,2020.
According to the girls’ mother Ann Njoki, the girls Faith Wanjiru (14) and Ann Wanjiru (16), who are both Standard seven pupils at Red Soil and Nkoroi Primary Schools, left home for church on 1st November but never returned.
Njoki said they searched for the girls everywhere they could think of before reporting them missing at the Kiserian Police station.
She said her family has been left in agony and distress since then and appealed to the public to volunteer any information that will help them trace the missing girls.
“It’s been a month since they left home and we are very stressed and disturbed. We have looked for them everywhere to no avail. If anyone has information about their whereabouts, please come forward and help us find them,” said Njoki.
Njoki noted that someone could be holding them against their will as they had received calls from the two girls on different occasions but the calls get disconnected each time they try to ask them where they were.
Cases of missing girls in the country have been on the increase in the recent months as schools remained closed since March due to the corona virus pandemic.
According to statistics by Missing Child Kenya, a Non-Governmental Organization that helps parents locate lost children, more than 200 children are reported missing every year with less than half of this number being reunited with their families.
Parents and guardians have been urged to watch their children closely and monitor their activities so as to ensure that they are safe at all times.
