“According to information received, the caretaker of the old-age home noticed on Friday, May 13, 2022, at about 5pm, that Seakgoe was missing, when he took the elderly residents to their respective sleeping rooms,” said North West police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Amanda Funani.

She said a search was conducted around the old-age home and the area of Mathibestad, without any success.
