UPDATE: Both have been found unharmed. No further update is available.

Worried friends and family are frantically sharing pictures of Delmarie Zitianellis and her infant Mateo who did not return home after they set off on a walk at 3.30pm on Thursday, February 18.

Posters of Elmarie (39) and her seven-month-old baby boy Mateo feature on many FB groups with a plea for any information that could lead to their location. According to one post, she left Fresnaye headed for Sea Point promenade wearing a long blue floral shirt over back tights with her son in a pram.

Another social media post said the pair were walking to the Checker’s Centre and when they reached Quenton Road her cellphone was switched off. It is unclear if this information is correct at this stage.

The family said they have opened a missing person’s case at the Sea Point police station.

If you have seen them please contact their family immediately on 074 334 2174, 072 468 2909 or 083 303 1093.
