NGO helps find more than 450 missing people
Missing Children South Africa has released its annual statistics for the period.
CAPE TOWN - Missing Children South Africa says it has assisted in finding more than 450 people over the past 12 months.
The organisation has released its annual statistics for the period between December 2014 the end of November.
Missing Children South Africa says it has been involved in 660 cases of missing persons between December 2014 and November 2015.
More than a hundred are still missing, while 252 adults and 200 children have been found.
However, six percent of the missing children were found deceased.
The organisation's Nicky Rheeder says, "Every year we see our success rate decrease. It's not necessarily because we're finding less people, it's just because more people are hearing about the service that missing people provides"
The annual statistics show Gauteng and the Western Cape have the most cases of missing people, with the least number of incidents reported in the Northern Cape.
