CAPE TOWN - The family of a missing Lavender Hill boy on Thursday said they were praying for his safe return.

Mohammad Haroon Jacobs disappeared last Friday while playing in front of his house in Ashley Court.

His mother Fatimah Jacobs said she realised that her son was missing when he did not return home that evening.

Nobody has seen him since.

Jacobs said they were trying to stay positive.

"I reported him to the police on Sunday. No one has seen or heard anything."

Jacobs said Mohammad had a habit of staying out late but he would always return home.

"He is a happy child and we just want him back."
