Beauty student goes missing after visit to Umoja salon

The family of a 21-year-old beauty student who went missing after a visit to a hair salon in Umoja on Saturday morning, is seeking help tracing her.

Daniella Mwenesi, a young mother of a one-year-old girl, was last seen wearing a white jumpsuit with black print and a black leather jacket when she left her home in Athi River to have her hair braided.

She also had light brown ‘kinky’ braids, is chocolate in complexion and has a nose ring.

Daniella is of medium height, about five feet tall, has long eyelashes and has no visible birthmark.

Her sister, Valentine Mwenesi, said that she had called her at around 3pm to find out whether she was done. The hairdresser later said she finished doing her hair at 7pm.

“On her way back home, Daniella, asked her hairdresser for the shortest route back to Athi River. She opted to use the Tassia route. I tried to reach her from 10pm till to date without a response,” a worried Valentine told Nairobi News.

The family has tried reaching out to her friends and her colleagues from Ashley’s College where Daniella is pursuing a short hair and beauty course.

None of them knows where she is.

Valentine posted her photos and the details of her the last time they spoke on social media to get clues on her whereabouts, but to no avail.

After the 24-hour mark since her disappearance, she was reported as missing on Monday morning at Embakasi.

“As a family we don’t know if it is a case of kidnapping or robbery. We only wish that anybody with any information on her whereabouts to go to any police station and report it,” Valentine, her elder sister, said.

“She is very conservative, hardworking, an amazing mother and a loving sister and aunt.”
