Brian Kanyori Wangui, a Form 2 student, has been spending time with his grandmother in Kikuyu area of Kiambu during the ending school break.

On April 15, he was sent to buy chicken feeds from a local shop in Kikuyu but took longer than usual. When confronted, he took off from home.

"We have tried our best to look for him. It is very sad for me not to know where my son is for over two weeks now. All efforts to trace him have not helped," his mother Susan Wangui said, sobbing.

"I have asked his classmates and friends in the area but no one has seen him," Wangui told the Star.

She said that her firstborn son was asked why he took two hours to be back home from the shop in a place that takes 30 minutes on a round trip.
