A mother from Parklands has made a desperate plea to the Cape Town community to help her find her missing daughter, Lilitha Amahle Ndungane (15). She has been missing since July 15 and was last seen by her mother before heading off for a walk. She said she would return shortly at 9.30am and has not been seen since.

“Please help my family to bring her back home unharmed and alive,” said her mother in a Twitter post.
Ndungane has black hair, a medium build and is 1.5 metres tall. She attends a primary school in Table View and frequents the Philippi East area.

She was last seen wearing the light pink hoodie below with a matching beanie with a pom pom on top, navy tracksuit pants and white sneakers.

“I filled a case, the police were very helpful and took on the search the day after I filed the case, they brought search dogs which sniffed her scent from old clothes and traced her scent from our home, the scent stopped three streets away on Parklands Main road where it meets Gie road, the police advised she could have gotten a lift or got into a taxi and that was the dead end, I have asked them if we can get camera footage from the streets she roamed when leaving home, I haven’t received any info yet,” says Ndungane mother.

According to Ndungane’s mother the search for her daughter was slowed due to a friend of hers who said she saw Ndungane in Acacia near Philippi. When asked what she was wearing the friend couldn’t remember and later said she hadn’t seen her in weeks. This supposed lead turned into a dead end.

Two police stations are currently working together on the case and the Pink Ladies Organisation is supporting in the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to urgently contact SAPS Milnerton FCS Unit on 079 893 9994 or Pink Ladies at 072 214 7439.
