A Montana resident has still not been found after he went missing almost four weeks ago.

Antonie Johannes Jeurgens Botha (31) was last seen at his home on 17 May around 11:30.

His family reported him missing and a search was launched in the area stretching from Montana, where Antonie lived with his wife, right up to Hartebeespoort dam.

Antonie’s mother Lea earlier said police investigated Antonie’s bank and phone records and could detect no activity since he went missing.

All Antonie’s clothes and belongings were left at home.

“So far there has been no new information. Nothing that can help us find him,” said Lea this week.

Sinoville police spokesperson Warrant Officer Johan van Dyk reminded residents there was no waiting period when reporting a missing person.

“Immediately report the missing person to your nearest police station,” he said.

When filing a missing person’s report, the police require the person’s full names and ID number and a proper description of what the person looks like – a photo would help.

The missing person’s last known location would also guide the police as they began the search.

“Give the police as much information as possible to help speed up the process of locating the missing person,” said Van Dyk.

“Be sure to mention distinctive features or possible skin defects, like scars, to help identify them.”

He said every missing person case was treated as urgent and immediate.

Anyone with information on Antonie’s whereabouts are asked to contact Colonel Alet Pratt, of Sinoville police station, on 012-543-0800 or the Pink Ladies on 072-214-7439 or 072-620-7704 or 083-378-4882.
