CAPE TOWN – There is still no sign of a missing six-year-old Herolds Bay girl Cozette Scheepers, who is believed to have drowned.

The child, her mother and two-year-old brother were reported missing more than two weeks ago.

Heidi Scheepers took her two children to the beach but they never returned home.

The George mom's body and that of her son have been recovered.

The police's Malcolm Poje said they would conduct sporadic patrols in the area.

“The search has been scaled down, so we are only doing sporadic patrols in that specific area. However, we're still appealing to the community at large to be vigilant when they see or notice any unknown object along the shore around Herolds Bay to immediately inform the George Police Station or the NSRI guys who are still on standby.”
