Her elder sister, Andile Phungula says they are trying to follow as many leads as possible.

"Nobody knows what happened to her. We contacted all her friends, and nobody seems to know about her whereabouts. She has never done this before. 

"It just doesn't make sense. She has to come home there is nowhere else but home. Wherever she is, I know it's not better than home," says Phungula. 

Police's Nqobile Gwala confirmed that there is an ongoing investigation.
