A 5-year-old girl who went missing in Kibaale has been found dead.
Florence Tukumusaba, a resident of Kacu village, Kyakazaire sub-county was staying with her grandmother Sefuroza Nyangoma.
It is alleged that Tukumusaba went missing on Monday from her grandmother’s home at around 9 a.m.
According to Sefuroza, she thought Tukumusaba had gone to play with her fellow children in the neighborhood but got concerned when she waited for her to return home in vain.
This prompted her to alert other area residents who embarked on the search for the child in vain. She later reported a case of a missing person at Kibaale Central Police Station.
On Thursday, Tukumusaba’s body was found dumped in a maize garden in the same village. The body was found with multiple injuries in the head and chest.
Police picked up the body that was later conveyed to Kibaale Health center IV where it is currently lying pending a postmortem.
Julius Hakiza, the Albertine Region Police Spokesperson says that investigations have commenced but no arrest has been made.
He has called on the residents to cooperate with the police by providing vital information that could lead to the arrest of the suspects
