Four street urchins are still missing days after being dumped in Chemususu Forest in Baringo.

The four aged between 12 and 20, were among 41 street children reported to have been ferried by the County Government of Nakuru and dumped in the forest at night.

The children were rescued and handed over to the county government of Nakuru after public uproar on social media.

Residents who rescued the children revealed to a local daily that they are yet to receive information on the whereabouts of the four.

They have however vowed to stay on the look out and give information if they spot them.

“The local community is on the lookout and will give information if they are spotted,” said said Kiragu.

21 among those rescued have since found a home at former NACADA boss John Mututho for rehabilitation.
