Cape Town – Nine months after German tourist Nick Frischke disappeared on a walking trail, a R20000 reward continues to be offered to help find him.
Frischke’s stricken mother took to social media last week, frantically making a public appeal.
“It’s now over nine months and almost 40 weeks,” said Jana Frischke via her Facebook account, “Missing Nick Frischke”, of which she is an administrator.
“I miss my son Nick very much this time is unbearable.
“Please help me.
“Where is my Nick?”
In June Jana visited Cape Town to hand over DNA samples to police in a bid to find out answers as to what had happened to him.
The family said they are continuing to offer a R20 000 reward for any information which will lead to Frischke being found and made another poster for their request. They said all information would be treated as confidential.
Jana said she had been raising two children alone since 2007 and had lost her own mother to cancer in 2020 and was struggling with the trauma of not knowing where her son was.
Frischke disappeared on the Hangberg trail between Hout Bay and Sandy Bay in February.
Igshaan Fisher, Jason Abrahams Vanroy Petersen, Carlo Guenantin and Melvin Guenantin are facing a charge of robbery.
The group were found in possession of Frischke’s belongings.
The men were back in the dock on November 9.
Extensive searches have been done for Frischke by police and volunteers.
Frischke is 1.75 metres tall and is athletic and had taken a climbing course and regularly participated in running events. Police spokesperson Wesley Twigg said the case was still under investigation and had ran cold: “There are no new developments to report at this stage.”
