Tracy Lukika’s family is desperately looking for information that will lead to her safe return. The 19-year-old was last seen waiting for a friend at the Mowbray taxi rank on Monday, July 13. She has since vanished.
Lukika was wearing a navy jacket paired with a white turtle neck top, blue jeans, a pink beanie and black boots when she went missing. She was also carrying a pink school bag.
Speaking to IOL, her uncle Emmauel said she went missing while returning from the Mowbray Damelin College campus, and was waiting for a friend before catching a taxi.
“When Tracy did not arrive at home the usual time she would and her phone was on voicemail, we were concerned and called her friends,” her uncle said. “Tracy’s close friend who walks to the taxi rank with her daily said when they reached the taxi rank around 11.30am, she noticed she had forgotten something at campus and told her she was coming back. When she returned, Tracy was gone and (her friend) assumed she boarded a taxi and gone home.”
Tracy’s cellphone was traced to Samora Machel, but she has not yet been found.
“We are scared because we have no relatives that side, and even her friends have confirmed she has never been to Samora or knows anyone from there. She always asks permission to visit friends or go anywhere else,” Emmanuel said.
