Durban - Thursday will mark five weeks since Westville businesswoman Sandra Moonsamy has been missing; but her family remain hopeful she will return home.
Moonsamy, 45, the financial director of Crossmoor Transport Plant, was snatched by unknown assailants in Stapleton Road, Pinetown, on May 30.
Her brother Inderan Naicker said they remained optimistic that she will be "returned to us safely."
"We are working closely with authorities to follow up on any new leads and seek out new details, which could assist us in locating her."
Naicker said that it is crucial to the investigation that South African citizens and the media refrain from sharing or publishing any information that is not verified, as this could hamper the on-going investigations, essentially putting Sandra's well-being at further risk.
