The bodies of two seven-year-old boys were found in a sewage dam in Steinkopf in the Northern Cape over the weekend.

According to Lt. Col. Sergio Kock, police spokesman, said the boys were last seen around 14:00 on Saturday. Their parents reported them missing around 11:30 p.m.

The police began a search for the boys and their clothes were found next to the dam the next day, after which their bodies were removed from the dam.

An inquest has been launched by the police.

Kock reminded members of the public that there is no waiting period before someone can be reported missing. He also appealed to parents to know where their children are at all times.
