A Cape Town constable who went missing on Tuesday morning has been found, police have confirmed.

Sindiswa Rum, 22, went missing on Tuesday morning after leaving the Nyanga police station in Cape Town, where she is employed as a constable.

According to Western Cape police spokesperson Colonel Andrè Traut, her mother reported her missing on the same day at around 22:00, after she failed to return home from a night shift that ended at 05:00 that morning.

"It is believed that Constable Rum left the police station in civilian clothes with an unknown person in a white vehicle. Her cellular telephone has since been switched off and attempts to trace her have been unsuccessful," Traut said at the time.

On Thursday, Traut confirmed that Rum had been found. "Kindly be advised that the missing Constable Sindiswa Rum has been found late [on Wednesday] night and has since been reunited with her family," he said. He did not elaborate on the circumstances surrounding Rum's disappearance.
