A boy who went missing in April 2020 and found in Sagana, Kirinyaga County told detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) that he wanted to take a break from his family following a dispute.

According to detectives, the family filed a missing report on April 6, after they thought their son was kidnapped. "There was joy and happiness at DCI Headquarters this week following a family reunion, thanks to DCI Homicide detectives. This follows a missing person report that was filed on April 6, 2020, where a family had alleged that their son had been kidnapped and feared that he may have been killed," said the DCI.

After months of searching for the boy, including in mortuaries, the family members almost lost hope. Last weekend, however, homicide unit detectives managed to locate Muriithi in Sagana, selling pineapples.

"The family members had almost given up looking for him after frantic search efforts which took them to different places including mortuaries, bore no fruits. However, last weekend detectives from the homicide unit traced their son to Sagana where he has been since his disappearance.
