The body of a woman who presumably fell or jumped from the top of Table Mountain was found at 1.30 on Tuesday, February 23.

The Western Cape Government’s EMS Rescue team dispatched a drone to help locate the woman at 8.35am and several flight searches were conducted.

“The body was eventually found by the EMS Rescue team who assisted with the search by foot as there were bushes that obstructed the view of the drone technician,” EMS spokesperson Deanna Bessick.

Earlier Bessick said the woman has been missing since Monday, February 22 and a missing person’s report was filed at SAPS Stellenbosch.

She was seen walking up the mountain on Friday [February 19] and her bag was found during the early hours of Saturday in the Fountain Ravine area on top of the mountain.

“We would like to extend our sincere condolences to the family and friends of the deceased,” said Bessick.

This is a developing story.
