A 14-year-old boy who had been missing for two weeks has been
found safe and well in Christchurch.
Until yesterday, Chinyanta (Chi Chi) Mfwembe had not been in
contact with family members since leaving his family home in
Sydenham on Tuesday, January 7.
Christchurch police said the boy was located safe and well
yesterday afternoon in the Cashmere area, after information
was received from a member of the public.
He has been returned to his family.
The Zimbabwe-born teenager had lived in New Zealand with his
family for five years and spoke English well, police said.
