UPDATE: Missing police officer found again

W/O Jacques Botha is missing for the second time.

The 44-year-old police officer who went missing for a second time on Monday, was found in Mooinooi, North West Province at 10pm, on Monday evening.

Lt Nomsa Sekela, Benoni police spokesman, confirms that Botha was found and says he has been admitted to a hospital in Benoni for treatment.

She says when they found him he “wasn’t himself and didn’t say much”.

Monday, March 7

For the second time in six days, W/O Jacques Botha (44) left his home in Selection Park just after 7am today (Monday) to go to work but never arrived at the Benoni Police Station.

Barries Barnard from Hi5Kids Recovery Unit, says one of Botha’s colleagues informed him that Botha didn’t report for duty this morning.

He disappeared on March 2, also shortly after leaving home for work, and was found later that evening in Sundra by the Sundra CPF.

Unlike last week, this time he took his personal documentation and two cellphones with him.

“We have tried to call him on both cellphones since this morning, but the phones are switched off,” says Barnard.

He is of slender build and about 1.8m in height and left home in a metallic silver Citroen Picasso.

If anyone sees Jacques, they can contact Barries on 081 575 4477.

His wife, Trudie was not available to speak to the Addie this morning.
