CAPE TOWN - The foster mother of two missing Manenberg girls says she remains hopeful they'll return home safely.

Six-year-old Amber and 13-year-old Cassidy Williams were last seen at their home on Sunday.

The children's foster mother, Maureen Arendse, explains: “On Sunday I went to my sister near Summer Square. My son-in-law told me the children were gone. I need help to find them.”

Police are investigating their disappearance.

Officials are also probing allegations of police misconduct after relatives were allegedly turned away while trying to report the children missing.
