A boy police has been searching for the last two months has finally been found at Re-Track Uganda, a Child care center. It has emerged that Success Mwesigwa, who disappeared from Little Angel Day and Boarding School in Kampala in October this year, was picked by police and handed to Re-Track Uganda.

 

His parents filed a case of his disappearance at Kampala Central Police Station and tasked the school to produce their child. It came after the school called Mwesigwa’s parents inquiring whether he had returned home since he couldn’t be traced in the Boarding section for two days.  

The school also opened a case of a missing child.  Police charged the school administration with failure to prevent a felony. A team of officers from the Flying Squad-FSU, Criminal Investigations Directorate –CID and Child and Family Protection Unit –CFPU was deployed to hunt for Mwesigwa’s whereabouts.  

His parents have also been moving from one station to another hoping to get information about his whereabouts. However, it was not until officers from the Child and Family Protection Unit scrutnised their records saw Mwesigwa’s name.     

Records showed the child was picked by officers from CPS on the very day he disappeared from school and took him to CFPU hoping that his parents would show up in vain. As result, CFPU handed the minor to an officer connected Re-Track Child care center.     

The Deputy Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, Luke Owoyesigyire, confirmed that the boy was picked by officers from Kampala Central Police Station. He however, says there was confusion when the minor gave police the name of a school in Mpigi District.

Mwesigwa has since been reunited with his parents in Kawempe Division in Kampala.
