A Criminal Investigations Department (CID) officer based at Ntcheu Police Station is reported missing since August 26.
Sergeant Felix Mapemba, 35, was deployed to Mwansambe Primary School registration centre in Traditional Authority (T/A) Mpando in Ntcheu West Constituency during phase four of voter registration.
Ntcheu Police Station spokesperson Hastings Chigalu said Mapemba told a fellow officer that he was going to fetch something from the shops, but never returned.
“After noticing that Mapemba was missing, his family reported the matter to police who launched investigations. We have asked the public to help us in the search,” he said.
On his part, his elder brother, Allan, said the situation is surprising to the family.
“Everyone in the family is surprised and shocked because Felix has never had a mental problem. Neither did he indicate that he had a serious problem,” he said.
Mapemba comes from Makunami Village, T/A Likoswe in Chiradzulu.
