A family is in agony after their four-year-old boy went missing under unclear circumstances more than a month ago.

The minor, identified as Lucky Mathew, had on September 20, gone to the shops with his elder brother in Chepsonoi along Kapsabet-Kakamega road only to disappear without a trace.

Monica Jelimo, the boy's mother, said she had sent her 18-year-old son Owen Ndieke to buy vegetables at the nearby market. She was shocked when Ndieke returned 30 minutes later without Mathew.

“When I asked where his baby brother was, Ndieke told me that Mathew returned home on the way. I was a bit surprised since the shops are less than 500 metres away. I didn’t expect him to get lost,” she said.

The family with the help of neighbours embarked on a search for the boy after reporting the incident to the police, but to date, he has not been found.

Nandi Central Police Commander Doris Chemosi said they are investigating.
