Five children are missing in Mchinji, after they allegedly ran away from a Salvation Army transit centre in the district.

A senior officer at the transit centre, who spoke on condition of anonymity, confirmed the development to the Malawi News Agency on Wednesday.

“We just noticed this yesterday (Tuesday) morning that some of the children we are keeping here are missing and we believe they have escaped.

“With little information we have now, we cannot rule out a case of child trafficking. It is believed that someone has influenced these children to escape,” the source said adding that the centre together with the police have launched a search and an investigation on the matter.

It is believed that the five, all under the age of 15, went over the centre’s brick fence to make their getaway.

Records show that the children have been living at the transit centre for 2 to 3 months after they were rescued from traffickers.

Their escape has heightened fears that they could fall back into the hands of child traffickers.

Among the escapees are two girls, one from Mzimba district and the other one from Dowa.

The other three are boys, one from Lilongwe and two from Kasungu.

    Greetings, I do think your site could be having web browser compatibility problems.
    When I look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in IE, it's got some overlapping issues.
    I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up! Besides that, excellent blog!
