Johannesburg - A couple of years ago, actress Letoya Makhene lost her mom. It was a dark time for the whole family and pushed her younger sister, Gontse, towards drugs to cope.

Gontse left the family to go find herself, but ended up disappearing. Letoya opened up earlier this year about her heartbreak over her little sister - you can read that HERE - but nothing could have prepared her for her sister's birthday. 

It was Gontse's birthday this week and Letoya took to Instagram to share her feelings towards her absent sister.

"On this day, 28 years ago...our mother, Agnes, gave birth to a beautiful baby girl...they named her Gontse. We've been trying to get hold of her for weeks, with no luck," she writes.

"Instead of celebrating my sister's life, I find myself feeling so sad-I can't stop crying."

"So I pulled out these pics of her in healthier times-glowing-and beautiful as ever," Toya wrote next to a picture of Gontse.

"We pray for you everyday...we've never stopped loving you. This collage is me celebrating you...I love you so much-it hurts. May you find the peace and happiness that you've been searching for for so many years" she added, along with plenty of kisses.

Our heart breaks for you, Letoya. We hope she finds her way home soon.
