CAPE TOWN - The family of a missing six-year-old Hanover Park child is pleading for anyone with information about her whereabouts to come forward.

Sasha-Lee November was last seen playing near her home in Groenal Walk on Sunday.

The child's mother, Sandra, made a desperate plea, "Anyone out there who knows anything, saw anything, I beg you please bring her back."

Residents have gone door to door, searched river banks and open fields with a fine-tooth comb desperately trying to find Sasha.

The search party walked through the streets calling on more residents to join in.

The missing girl's sister, Jasmine Harris, said she still has not come to terms with what has happened.

"It's so difficult for me to come to terms that she is gone now, I am so hopeless,"

Her mother Sandra on Wednesday said she initially thought her daughter slept over at her neighbour's house.

But on Monday morning when she went to the neighbour's house, they told her that the child had not spent the night there.

The visibly distressed mother said she immediately went to the police station to report her daughter missing.

She said she has not been able to sleep or eat since her daughter's sudden disappearance.
