Armed police, who went to search for the her at the official residence of Prime Minister Thomas Thabane on Friday, did not find her there.

Government spokesperson Nthakeng Selinyane has told the BBC's Focus on Africa programme that the police are ready to ask for international help to find her.

Lipolelo Thabane was shot dead while travelling home with a friend, two days before the inauguration of her husband in June 2017.
