CAPE TOWN - Parkwood residents in Cape Town will join Western Cape Safety and Security MEC Dan Plato, police and religious leaders in a prayer march on Sunday morning following the discovery of a missing 12-year-old girl's body.

Jennifer Williams disappeared over a month ago and a week later, her badly burnt body was found in a field in Ottery.

On Friday, the girl's parents were informed that the body was positively identified, following weeks of waiting for DNA results.

Ward councillor Melanie Arendse said, "The day will be dedicated to Jennifer Williams."
