Family in agony after disappearance of their four-year-old son on New Year’s Day

A Nairobi family has been left in agony following the disappearance of their four year old last born child from a playground on New Year’s Day.

Shem Okech and his wife Pamela Wandere Oketch, who reside in Civil Servants in Kariobangi South, told Nairobi News, they have had the most trying moment of their lives after their son, Emmanuel John Okech, went missing on January 1st while playing with his friends.

According to Okech, his son had just been bathed at around midday and was told to go and play with his friends outside but has never been seen again.

At around 2 pm, her mother went to fetch him since she wanted him to come back and have lunch and that is when they found out he was missing.

“The other children told us that he left alone and went the other side of the building,” the mother narrated.

Wandere said they have reported the disappearance to Buru buru Police Station and also left his picture with the station.

The family has now resorted to circulating photos of their son within the neighbouring estates after reporting the matter to all the nearby police stations and Administration Posts.

The father of four who works as a mechanic in Eastlieigh said his son is conversant in Swahili.

The family is appealing to anyone who might have seen their son to contact them on 0722744289 or 0722605198 or report or the nearest police station.
