CAPE TOWN - The atmosphere in the Mlityalwa family home is one of fear and declining hope as today marks the third day since little Bukho disappeared.

Bukho's mother Nokhubonga battled to contain her emotions when she spoke to Eyewitness News about her son.

"Bukho my child, wherever you are, please come back to us, we are hurting, we need you."

Nokhubonga says police have started searching for a body as they say the critical 48 hour period has lapsed.

She says her husband is not coping with their son's disappearance.

She says her spouse leaves their home at sunrise every morning in the hope of finding the child.

At the same time the Hanover Park community and police are looking for 6-year old Sasha-Lee November who went missing last Sunday.
