The Mamelodi family is still searching for their teenage son who went missing four weeks ago.

Tshepo Mamogobo (16) of Mahube Valley Extension 3 was reported missing at the Mamelodi East police station on 13 September after he failed to return home from a school trip on 11 September.

Mamelodi police spokesperson, Captain Michael Mbewe confirmed the police were investigating a case of a missing person.

On 11 September, the Bona Lesedi High School grade 10 learner apparently told his parents he was going on a school trip to Moretele Park.

The school principal has confirmed the Grade 10 learners went on a trip that day but said Tshepo was not on the trip.

Anyone who knows his whereabouts can contact the police on 012-815-7080 or his mother Dorothy Moremane on 076-032-4658.
