Free State police are requesting assistance in tracing a 13-year-old St. Andrew’s School learner who has recently been reportedly missing.
According to police spokesperson Stephen Thakeng, the boy was last seen when he was taken to school. He, however, left the school premises to his home and fetched his cellphone, tablet and two bags full of clothes without the permission of his parents.
“This morning, at about 09:00 a learner of St. Andrew’s, Jonathan Begashaw, was taken to school by his parents in Welkom. The mother, Lilian Begashaw, received a call from school that her child had left the school premises. Apparently, he went home to fetch his cellphone, tablet, clothing and left home with unknown mode of transport. According to information, he informed other people that he wants to proceed with a career in the music industry in Warrant Officer Piet Jacobs of Welkom Police Station”
