The body of one of the three children who went missing in Mamelodi East, Pretoria, has been found, the city of Tshwane said on Saturday.

The deceased boy was found underneath a tree on Saturday morning, said spokesman Blessing Manale.

The search for the remaining two children is continuing.

Manale said the search would be easier as water levels had dropped by Saturday following heavy rainfall earlier this week.

The three boys went missing on Monday evening and were last seen playing after school.
