The Mystery of the Missing Mother and Daughter after Visiting the Baby's Father
A family in Nandi County has appealed to the public for assistance in locating a mother and her daughter who went missing last month.
Ms Ezzy Langat, 32, left her job in Oyugis, Homa Bay County, with her one-and-a-half-year-old daughter on October 24 and traveled to Kisii to meet her baby's father.
Her family had not heard from her since.
The two are said to have spent the night at Ms Langat's boyfriend's house, whom the distraught family only refers to as Eric.
According to Ms Dorine Langat, the missing woman's older and only sister, the man is a taxi driver in Kisii town.
"When we couldn't get through to her, we called Eric's mother, who confirmed that they had spent the night at her house." "She then told us that the son had accompanied them to Kisii town the next morning to board a vehicle back to Oyugis, but we haven't heard from them since," Ms Langat said.
The family was even more concerned when Ezzy's social media accounts were deleted, prompting them to file a report with the Oyugis Police Station.
According to Ms Langat, police initially traced Eric's phone number to Kisii's Nubia area near Nyanchwa estate, but the phone has since been switched off.
"We don't know what we can do, and we beg God to help us find them." "We urge anyone who may have seen them to please report to any police station," Ms Langat added.
Kisii police were not immediately available for comment on the investigation.
