A family in Rupingazi village in Mbeti North, Embu, is in agony after their realtive disappeared over a month ago.
The family of 24-year-old taxi operator Kevin Kimanthi, alias Mnati Kobia, said he went missing on November 5.
He was hired from his place of work in Embu by three unidentified men to take them to Siakago at around 7pm.
His father, John Kinyua, said he had communicated with some of his colleagues twice, while en route to the destination and indicated he might come back late but never returned.
He said efforts to reach him that evening were futile as his phone had been switched off, prompting them to report to Central Police Station three days later.
Kinyua, however, said his car was found abandoned near Siakago town and towed to the police station and only his National Identification Card was found in his car.
He said they have desperately been looking for their son in vain and blamed the police for laxity in tracing him.
“Life has not been easy since the day he disappeared and we pray and hope that he will resurface alive,” his mother Nancy Njoki said.
“He was a darling to us and his three siblings as he was amiable, hardworking and spared no effort to assist any of them, whenever a need arose.”
Njoki said his young siblings who are all in school, have been greatly distressed over his disappearance and unable to concentrate on their studies.
The family said the young man had never expressed fear or concern over his well-being, whether in the line of duty or social life.
His colleague, Charles Kinyua, said it has been difficult for him to come to terms with his mysterious disappearance since he was with him on the day he disappeared and never showed any sign of distress or fear.
