The police are looking for two schoolgirls who are reported missing at Mallam-Gbawe, in the Gretare Accra Region.
According to the police, the two teenagers left home for school on Friday, February 7, 2020, and have since not returned home.
The names of the girls are given as Betty Afanyibo and Theresa Koranteng.
The two girls, who are 15-years-old lived with their guardians in Accra.
Their guardians say they have looked everywhere for them, but all efforts to find them have proved futile.
The police are appealing to the general public to volunteer any form of information on the whereabouts of the girls.
The police say anyone with such information should report to the Odorkor Divisional Police or the nearest police station.
In June 2019, YEN.com.gh reported that security forces rescued two Canadian women who were abducted in Kumasi and arrested eight people in connection with their kidnapping.
The pair were named as Lauren Tilley and Bailey Chitty by Youth Challenge International, an international development organisation headquartered in Toronto.
Kidnappings for ransom have been all too common for years in Nigeria, and officials in Ghana say they are on the rise here too.
Ghana has long been considered one of the least dangerous countries in West Africa, but recent statistics show otherwise.
YEN.com.gh also earlier reported that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Deputy National Organizer, Chief Hamilton Biney is set to marry the Deputy Director of the Microfinance and Small Loans Centre (MASLOC), Maame Afia Akoto.
According to Accra based Peace FM, the two political opponents will tie the knot this week on Wednesday, February 12, 2020.
