A Kenyan lady only identified as Deborah Misesi is crying out the public to help her retrace her missing son who mysteriously disappeared from their Chepilat home near Sotik on Thursday last week.
In the emotional clip shared on her Facebook page, Deborah continues to add that on that fateful afternoon, 3-year-old autistic Samuel Omondi was under the care of a young housegirl who mans her parent’s house.
She reportedly left him within the compound and went to grab him a cup of tea only to return back outside and find the boy missing.
Towards the end of the video, emotions overwhelm Deborah as she pleads with Kenyans to pray for her and her son whom she described as an extremely lovable boy who didn’t like much company due to his condition and hardly left the home.
According to the International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children, eight million children go missing annually which translates to nearly 22,000 children every day around the world.
Child trafficking for child labor, sex trade, child pornography or other forms of exploitation are receiving global attention, and Kenya has been identified as a hub.
Lost and unidentified children are susceptible to a higher risk of abuse, exploitation, trafficking or even death.
