‘Miracles happen’: Joslin Smith ‘She’s still alive’: Joslin Smith’s community spot ‘sign’ in sky [watch]

The community of Saldanha Bay – including Patriotic Alliance leader Gayton McKenzie -believes Joslin Smith is alive after seeing a “sign” in the sky.

The seven-year-old girl who went missing on Monday, 19 February, has yet to be found.

However, the politician and hundreds of community members remain firm in their faith that they will find her before it’s too late.


On Wednesday, 28 February, Gayton McKenzie updated his social media followers on his leads in his quest to find Joslin Smith.

The Patriotic Alliance leader has been leading a search party since earlier this week.

At one stage, Gayton had to stop his vehicle to address community members about possible suspects he had identified.

The politician – who is a reformed convict – was met with a “miraculous” sign in the sky.

In clips posted on social media, Saldanha Bay residents are seen pointing to the sky to what appears to be an image of a cross or possibly an angel.

Gayton later said in a Facebook Live: “I saw the cross with my own eyes. I was asking God if this child is still alive. I asked God for a sign.

“I got cold shivers looking at it. I had to wipe my tears. That, for me, was God’s confirmation”.

He said: “I’m not going to give up on Joslin. I’m going to make sure that nobody’s child goes missing”.

Joslin’s mother, Kelly, also believes the young girl is alive. 

“I feel it in my heart,” she said in a Facebook Live earlier this week.

Joslin Smith’s Story: A Beacon of Hope Amidst Darkness

In the midst of uncertainty and anguish, a glimmer of hope emerges as an old Google Street View snapshot resurfaces, igniting South Africans’ belief that Joslin Smith, missing since February 19 from her home in the Middelpos informal settlement in Diazville, may still be alive.

The image, shared on TikTok by user Jeanre du Plessis, captures what seems to be Joslin being carried home from school by her father, Jose Emke, in September 2023. Despite the photo predating Joslin’s disappearance, its discovery has sparked a resurgence of optimism. “I swear it’s her,” Jeanre affirms, highlighting the uncanny timing of the Google Street View snapshot and its potential significance in the search for Joslin.

This revelation comes on the heels of another TikTok post from last week, featuring a 2022 image of Joslin walking behind her mother, Kelly, in the Middelpos informal settlement. These glimpses into Joslin’s past have stirred a renewed sense of determination to find her, shedding light on a story marked by resilience and unwavering hope.

Addressing the absence of recent sightings, Jeanre clarifies that Google Street View captures snapshots of locations periodically, typically every one to three years, explaining why there have been no recent images of Joslin since her disappearance.

Despite the passage of time, faith in Joslin’s safe return remains steadfast. Diazville Primary School, where Joslin was a student, symbolically expressed their hope by donning green attire, a color representing life. In a Facebook post adorned with pictures of staff wearing green, the school conveyed their unwavering belief in Joslin’s eventual reunion with her loved ones. “We believe Joslin will return safely,” the post proclaimed, echoing the sentiments of a community united in solidarity and resilience.

Political figures, including Patriotic Alliance leader Gayton McKenzie, have also voiced their conviction that Joslin is still alive, emphasizing the importance of sustaining hope amidst adversity. As South Africans rally together in support of Joslin and her family, her story serves as a poignant reminder of the enduring power of hope and the unwavering resolve to never give up on finding the ones we love.

In the face of darkness, Joslin Smith’s story shines as a beacon of hope, illuminating the path towards a future where reunions and miracles are not merely dreams but tangible realities. #bringbackjoshlin #joslinsmith #hope
