The frantic search continues for thirty-one year old Ross Govender from Rosebank in Johannesburg. Govender was last seen on Friday at a shopping mall in Rosebank, Illovo.
According to concerned friend and colleague Anthonie Bekker, Govender was last seen outside Babylon Bar just before 12 in the morning on Friday night.
He’s believed to have then walked alone to his car in the parking lot at the Thrupps Centre in Illovo. He has not been heard from since.
Bekker told Mambaonline that Govender was not the type of person to willingly disappear in this manner. “He’s a very down to earth guy,” he said.
The Pink Ladies – a volunteer-based organisation which helps find missing people – has since sent out an alert asking members of the public to assist in the search for Govender.
The organisation’s director, Dessie Rechner says, communities often help by providing information regarding missing people. She says even the smallest bits of information can make a big difference.
