The police are still searching for a 31-year-old man who went missing in Montana on 17 May.

Antonie Johannes Jeurgens Botha was last seen at the home he shared with his wife that Wednesday morning.

His mother, Lea reported him missing after noticing he had not taken a change of clothes or any of his other belongings.

“We’ve heard nothing new,” was the message Lea has repeated week after week.

The police said Botha had yet not been found despite them following up on every single hint and lead.

“Our investigating officer works tirelessly to try and find the man – following up on rumours or hints from residents,” said police spokesperson Warrant Officer Johan van Dyk.

He encouraged people not to delay reporting a person missing.

“There is no waiting period,” he said.

“Police treat missing people reports as a top priority, therefor we also ask that people do not waste our resources by reporting false missing person cases.”

Anyone with information on Botha’s whereabouts can contact Colonel Alet Pratt at the Sinoville police station on 012-543-0800 or the Pink Ladies on 072-214-7439 or 072-620-7704 or 083-378-4882.
