Warrant officer Michael Daniels and CPF Charles George explain helping in the return of Daniels recently found in Eswatini.

Two police officers from Delft volunteered to drive Jane Daniels all the way to eSwatini, to fetch her mentally ill son Denzil, who had been missing for six years.

Denzil Daniels was believed to have died six years ago and was recently found in Eswatini formerly known as Swaziland.

He disappeared without a trace from Delft until he was recently found scratching in bins outside a supermarket by the police.

Kieno Kammis chats to South African Police Service (Saps) warrant officer Michael Daniels and CPF Charles George.

The first thing that went through my mind when the mother told us about her son, is that I thought about my own children. What would I do if my child was gone for six years? I would probably not be able to sleep, I would worry if he has a bed wherever he is. Does he have food to eat?

Michael Daniels, Warrent officer - Saps

He says Jane went to the police station and told them that she feels that her son is still alive and she had a dream about him.

We later tried to investigate and suddenly a phone call came, where an inspector in eSwatini asked if we are working with missing person's unit, and we said yes, he asked us whether we know a Denzel Daniels and I said the name didn't sound familiar. But he told us there was a Denzel Daniels in Eswatini roaming the streets.

George says they volunteered to go fetch Daniels and was taken to hospital for a medical check-up.

All the doctors are on standby to make sure that they can do proper assessments with regards to Daniels condition. We brought him back late last night
