A mother and father’s nightmare has been realised. Their teenage son has gone missing. Vanished without a trace.
His family is in a state of worry. What do you do when your child goes missing? This follows the disappearance of 16-year-old Wikus Vorster.
Linda Roestof, Wikus’s aunt, explains he went missing before 5.30am this morning, February 6.
“He and his parents had a bit of an argument last night and when they woke up this morning at 5.30am, he was gone.”
The teenager lives in Murchison Street with his family. He is wearing a black jacket and black takkies. It is unclear what clothing he is wearing.
“He took absolutely nothing with him,” Linda cries. No bag, no money, no extra clothing, nothing to help him.
Captain Nagesh Moothilal of the Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit (FCS), says before Wikus left the house, he left his family a note.
“In the letter, he wrote: I love you mom, I love you dad and I love you my sister.”
As Wikus does not have a cellphone on him, he cannot be traced or contacted. The police and Wikus’s family are now looking at the community for assistance.
“Wikus is such a kind, soft and caring youngster. We don’t know why he did this. If anyone sees him, please call us,” Linda begs the community.
