CCTV footage leads to missing Homa Bay teacher

A Homa Bay teacher who had gone missing after marking KCPE examinations in Nairobi has been found after he was spotted on CCTV footage.

Moses Odumbe was found on Tuesday evening at Kamukunji Grounds in Nairobi after his family searched for him for several days.

The 49-year-old teacher from Kogana Priamary School in Rachuonyo had been reported missing for more than two weeks.

He had left his rural home at Kogana village, Karabodni Location on November 8 at 5:30 pm.

The man told his family that he was headed to St. Georges Girls Secondary school in Nairobi to mark the national exam papers.

He reportedly told them that he would return after the exercise but this was not to be.

The family got even more worried after Education CS George Magoha announced the results of the KCPE examinations on November 18 but Odumbe was nowhere to be seen.

His wife Joyce Odumbe told the Daily Nation that she could no longer reach him on phone as it was switched off.

The last time that they had heard news about him was when he reportedly communicated with his son, a student at the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology on November 10.

The matter reported at the Kilimani Police Station in Nairobi and also at Kendu Bay Police Station.

On Tuesday however; one of his relatives, Colins Odhiambo, told Citizen Digital that the teacher was found alive sitting at Kamukunji Grounds.

Odhiambo revealed that they traced him through CCTV footage after getting a tip-off that he was seen spending the night in an unidentified location in Nairobi from November 9 to 11.

The man has been taken to Nairobi West Hospital for medical examination.
