“This office can confirm that the missing Shireen Essop has been found and reunited with her family. The details of the matter are still the subject of the investigation.”

Further details on what transpired were not available.

The family has asked for privacy.

Western Cape Police Oversight and Community Safety MEC Reagen Allen said he was pleased that Essop had returned home safely.

“I’ve also been informed that the Klipfontein Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) was involved in finding her. Having a NHW actively involved in this manner is what is meant by the ‘all of society’ approach. I’ve, however, been informed that this NHW is not yet registered with us, and I’d like them to urgently contact us so that they can formally be recognised. It just shows what can be achieved when we’re all involved in combatting crime.”
