CAPE TOWN - Nuraan van Wyk, who went missing in Mitchells Plain on Friday, has been found after the Mitchells Plain community and police embarked on an almost 24-hour search for her.

The 13-year-old was last seen in Portlands with a friend early on Friday afternoon.

The Mitchells Plain Community Policing Forum (CPF)'s Abie Isaacs said, "We want to express our appreciation to the South African Police Service (Saps), the community, the CPF and the neighbourhood watch. This investigation has now been referred to the Saps."

Meanwhile, police said on Saturday there is still no sign of a missing eight-year-old Grassy Park girl.

Kiana Williams is believed to have disappeared on Tuesday as she did not attend school.

Her mother informed police about her disappearance on Thursday.

She told officials she realised her daughter was missing when she returned home from hospital after giving birth.

The little girl was left in the care of her grandmother.

Western Cape Social Development MEC Albert Fritz on Saturday expressed concern over the disappearance of children in the province saying incidents like these are worrying.

"Every child that disappears is one child too many. We're really, really worried about people not exercising their basic duties as parents. We really want to ask parents to exercise their parental responsibilities when it comes to their children," says the MEC.

Anyone with information can call Crime Stop on 0800 10 111 or investigating officer Grant Carolisen on 071 354 2490 for the Williams case.
