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.

    Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon everyday.
    It's always interesting to read through articles from other authors and practice a little something from their web sites.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and
    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
    She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit
    crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is important and
    everything. Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great visuals
    or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could definitely be one of the best in its field.
    Fantastic blog!
