Here are four different news from Australia and South-Africa. They are all recent and we found them on newspapers online from the countries.

Family desperate to find missing son Samuel Carew-Reid
 The mother of 21 year old Samuel is desperate to find her missing son. Samuel is a musician who left for a health retreat on Saturday afternoon and the plan was that he was going to stay there for a couple of days. But Samuel left the retreat the same evening and since then no one has seen him. He left the retreat in a silver Subaru Impreza with the registration number 1CKA 679. He left most of his belongings behind. Including his beloved guitar. Samuel is described by his friend and family as a social person and It’s not like him to not keep in touch. He is normally always on Facebook. His credit card has not been used since he went missing and his mother is really worried.  Today, Samuel’s mother Sally-Ann Jones said many of her son’s mates and family had gone to the area to search for him. “Sam is very, very thin and he is not used to being out in the bush. This will have been his third night out in the bush…I am worried he will be cold, hungry and thirsty,” Ms Jones said. Samuel is about 180cm tall and has red hair and beard and green eyes. A lot of police is looking for him, but if you have any information please help.
Anyone with any information about  the 21-year-old should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
