Western Cape detectives have found the body of missing Tazne van Wyk, aged 8-years-old, outside Worcester, Cape Town.
Tazne was last seen two weeks ago while walking to the shops in Ravensmead in Cape Town.
A 54-year-old suspect was arrested on Tuesday night in Cradock, Eastern Cape, in relation to her disappearance.
Police spokesperson Novella Potelwa says the interrogation of the suspect led detectives finding Tazne’s body in a stormwater pipe on the N1 outside Worcester.
Potelwa says the parents of Tazne have been informed of the discovery and they are receiving counselling.
The suspect will be charged with murder and will appear in the Goodwood Magistrate’s Court on February 21, 2020.
