There is no waiting period to report a missing person – the quicker, the better

Police are still searching for four brothers from Polokwane who were apparently kidnapped on Wednesday morning while on their way to school.
The police have no clues, and the family has no idea where they could be or what the motive for the kidnapping is, despite earlier speculation that they are waiting for a ransom demand.
The children’s father is a wealthy businessman who owns several businesses in Polokwane.
