Durban - Police have appealed for anyone who has a missing loved one to come forward after the discovery of another body in dense bush in Sydenham.

This brings to four the total number of bodies found in the area in the past week.

Police spokesman Captain Thulani Zwane said the first body was found by a scrapmetal collector when he stumbled on human remains in bush off Locksley Drive.

Police went to investigate, and following a search by the Durban K9 Unit, two more bodies were discovered.

Police appealed for people with any information to contact the local police station or detective branch commander, Colonel Ndlovu, at 082 414 9260 or 031 203 2700, Zwane said.
