Probe starts after missing GSU officer’s car is found abandoned at a quarry in Mwiki
Police in Kiambu County are investigating the disappearance of Joseph Otieno, a 36-year-old GSU officer attached to the GSU headquarters in Ruaraka.
Mr. Otieno was reported missing by his wife Caroline Odhiambo on July 11 at the Kasarani Police Station, according to a police report obtained by Citizen Digital on Monday.
He went missing on July 9 and has not been seen or heard from since, according to his wife.
“Efforts to trace him have been in vain as his phone has been switched off and his whereabouts unknown,” the police report reads in part.
According to the officers in charge of the case, his phone signal was last picked up in Naivas Supermarket in Ruaraka at 11:13 a.m. on Friday.
Detectives also discovered a car he had rented a few days before, abandoned near a quarry in Mwiki.
His wife and children were among those who joined a search party that combed the area near the quarry, fearful that their breadwinner had been murdered and his body dumped there.
GSU officers have also joined the search, which began on Monday and is now in its second day.
