Police say their team of investigators assigned to the case of six-year-old Joslin Smith from Saldanha Bay on the Cape West Coast are still pursuing all available leads to find her.

Police spokesperson Joseph Swartbooi says police are following up on all information at their disposal in a bid to find a breakthrough.

The grade 1 learner went missing over two weeks ago when she was left in her mother’s boyfriend’s care.

The child’s mother and three other suspects including her boyfriend, appeared in the Vredenburg Magistrate’s Court last week in connection with her disappearance.

Jacquen Rowhan Appollis, Steveno Dumaizio van Rhyn, Racquel Chantel Smith and Phumza Sigaqa face charges of trafficking persons for the purposes of exploitation and kidnapping.

The case has been postponed to March 13 for bail information.

Various searches are underway by diverse parties including the police, the Navy and municipal law enforcement agencies of the City of Cape Town and the Saldanha Bay Local Municipality where she resides.
